Ethereal Glow - Neko Harbour
Our lone "landing" on the Antarctic peninsula took place at this wonderful spot - Neko Harbour, where there was a colony of Gentoo penguins. (The other planned "landing" on the continent had to be scrapped due to bad weather.)
The harbour is sheltered on both sides by high mountains and HUGE glaciers coming down to the water's edge. Sailing in, the Ushuaia had to stop some ways away from land due to the ice pack, and it was a fairly slow and treacherous zodiac ride to get to land because of ice hitting the motor. Along the way, the still water made perfect mirrors, and the sunlight hitting the water gave both the water and the icebergs an almost heavenly, golden glow that was tricky to bring out in post-processing.
By the time we made it to land, we were told that we could not stay on the "beach" for really any period of time as the glaciers a few hundred yards away were calving. And indeed, shortly after we step on the Antarctic mainland, a nearby glacier calved, creating a mini tidal wave, and sending penguins running (somewhat hilariously) for cover at the sound of the ice hitting the water. All I could do is stare in awe; Neko Harbour is one of the most remarkable places I think I will ever visit.
