Photographer's Note

This is a picture taken as we were sailing along the Gerlache Strait between the mainland of Antarctic Peninsula and two large islands: Anvers Island and Brabant Island. The land mass in the picture is the Anvers Island. The undulating landscape with multiple mountain peaks shrouded in cloud illustrate the sometimes mystic mood of the Antarctic. The iceberg in front was included as a foreground for the composition.
The faint yellowish tint to the snow in the distance is a constant phenomenon seen in the Antarctic. I still do not fully comprehend the physics behind it.
Picture was taken at 64,41.88S, 63,10.43W
Picture was taken with a polarizing filter.
