#7 Majesty!

I have to be honest.  Antarctica never really appealed to me as a beautiful place to visit.  I wanted to go there to check off my 6th continent and to see millions of penguins.  Snow? Ice? Mountains? Bleh!  That had no draw for me.

Having been there, now all I can say is WOW!  Magestic is the only word I can find even close enough to describe the INCREDIBLE beauty of Antarctica.  The colors seem unreal.  The deep blues of the ice, the dark black of the rock.  The hundreds of shades of gray that I never knew existed (nor would have ever thought were beautiful).

I was completely blown away by Antarctica's beauty.  So what follows are just a few of my favorite shots of this truly amazing area of the world.  I swear, if you haven't been there, these don't do it justice!
