Captivating images.

I LOVE the one with a (three?) master almost in silouette

And, as recently discovered by crew and guests on the ship studying global warming, the ice has almost entirely disappeared.

Very true. It's a shame their ship ran into all that styrofoam...

We were at McMurdo Station in the 1990’s. Incredible how much life there is.

Mt. Erebus, an active volcano down there, is like something out of a 1960’s modernist design studio. It has jewel-encrusted stones littering the sides of it - ejected from the volcano.

By helicopter, if you fly inland, you’ll find a place called the Dry Valleys. There is no life there at all. Just wind and freezing cold. No ice. Just beautifully bleak. Surreal.

I used to run our public affairs shop on the ship, and my PA2 brought back all kinds of great black and white photos back when you had to develop them. We had a complete dark room on the ship. I have some amazing shots.

Perhaps I lost my will
But something of my innocence
Is wandering there still.
Antarctica.”

A trip to Antarctica is very close to the top of my “bucket list”.

At :35 second mark, are those penguins FLYING?

I thought I read fast, but man, I had to pause or rewind the video a few times to be able to finish the text on the screen.

And wow... I’m kinda chilly now. The power of suggestion!
