These cute guys were originally rejected for inclusion in the Gallery on the grounds that they were too dirty. They are now included at the insistence of the photographer!!

    Hi Mary,

    Looks like you are having a whale of a time! Great to see the photos coming through now- suppose it snow surprise that your Internet kept freezing before!

    Love the penguins – any chance you could bring one home!!?

    Enjoy the rest of the trip – we are following every day and are very jealous!!

    Take care

    Ps hope you are getting on ok with the camera – manual mode all the way!!!

      Hi ,

      Great to hear from you. I’ll let the photos speak for themselves but I haven’t mastered managing that long lens with manual focus. Best effort was the skuas at the King Penguin colony.

      I have loads of pictures of sea birds out of sight!

      Great talk on astro photography this evening by a staff member from BAS base on South Georgia. She is taking a lift to Falklands with us. Amazing pictures taken with basic enough kit. Suppose it helps being 800 miles from city lights.

    Hi Ger,
    Great photos of Happy Feet and his pals! Can’t imagine them hanging on your living room wall anytime soon though. How is all the rocking and rolling on the ship? Do you still know which way is up? Enjoy the rest of your great adventure. I’m enjoying living vicariously through your blog.
