Something a little more conceptual, I shot this last summer and love the emotion Sheridan was able to portray.  This was an extremely humid day spent in the woods but these girls killed it. Lovely and creepy all at the same time… xx

The second stop on our Antarctic voyage was Wilhelmina Bay. To explain the experience of the expeditions a bit; what we liked about this part was their organization in our expeditions… since there is no place to dock and get off on your own, the small zodiacs (small rubber boats in some of the photos) were the only transportation to land from where the ship was anchored. Half of the group would spend time just cruising around in those and seeing the other side of the islands that we couldn’t walk around on. Then half way through our outing we would switch, the zodiacs would drop passengers off at the landing site and those who had been walking / hiking would get on the zodiacs to jet around the bay. The zodiacs were only about 8-10 passenger boats so this was a nice way to see everything and get lots of photos. You’ll see the difference in my pictures, that sometimes we were out on the water and other were taken from the shore or top of the mountain! This day when we were cruising, we had our first whale sighting. The tail in my pictures is a humpback whale. Crazy and beautiful to be so close. When we got on land (last of the photos) there was an option to hike and that little building was an Argentine base. Wild to think that tiny shack provided refuge. I can’t imagine being stuck on Antarctica in the dead of winter like the early explorers. It was zero (if not below zero) when we were there, even in the summer. Yikes.

There are a few sunny photos from this stop but mostly fades to grey. The highlight was definitely the whales this day. We watched them dive from that tiny boat, really seeing only a sliver of what magnitude was underneath. Amazing creatures in the Antarctic I tell ya.

More on Antarctica soon. Thanks for stopping by! xo
