antarctica pictures! :)  
I don't know why, but I'm in the mood for a picspam :D These are from our excursion to Antarctica in 2005. We went with GAP on the Little Red Ship - also known as the MS EXPLORER. Yes... the ship that sank *TEAR*
These photos were taken by nature photographers on the boat (my photos are on a hard drive that I don't have with me). They include various wildlife, landscapes, the captain loaning his jacket to the barman *grin* and other items of interest. Enjoy! :D

Very wonderful, i need to ask however how did you handle the cold?

It really wasn't that cold! it ranged between +4*C and -4*C. The only time we were cold was when we walked on the mainland of Antarctica (the yellowish cliff face and the photo below it). Our camera batteries only lasted 10 minutes and we had to keep them inside our bras to stop them from freezing up but it was only -8*C. In any case, I wore a pure wool thin jumper with an average snow parker over it and then I added a scarf, beanie and Polaroid sunnies (most important!). For the legs It was just ski pants! and two pairs of socks with gumboots. (yes, your average garden gumboots - we had no choice!!!!!!)

Are you serious? (about the temperature)! It gets colder than that here in California!

I can only imagine how inspiring it would be there. Just thinking about it makes my muse giggle.

It was kind of a random thing and happened quite without warning.
