Salisbury Plain and more -- UNBELIEVABLE
Antarctica - pure awe for 19 days...
I love using wide angle lenses on animals and these Kings didn't disappoint. There were glaciers in the background, tussock grass with fur seals, just pure magic, truly. We spent a few hours at Salisbury Plain, but there was more excitement ahead! Later that morning we visited Prion Island, climbing to the peak among hundreds of fur seals to arrive at the primary Wandering and Sooty Albatross breeding sites. The Albatross bumble-landed to feed their chicks, swooping within a few feet of our heads so you could hear the air moving. 360 sprawling views of South Georgia surrounded the nests. Finally, we made a third landing at Hercules Bay to see the Macaroni penguins hopping up sheer rock cliffs to their nests. They were quite comical and noisy. What a day!
