Photographer's Note

We spent a day around Winter Island (what a great name for this Antarctic island).

We were lucky enough to have some of the family of John Rymill on our Antarctic trip. John was a Polar explorer and had led an expedition amongst others, down trough Antarctica in the 1930s. We were actually following his route.

Winter Island is where they stayed for a while and anchored their ship 'The Penola' and built a base, 'base F' for the winter.

Having some spare time left, we jumped back into the Zodiacs and our guide took us for a spin through the icebergs around the island.

These ones were towing above us, around 30m high.

With the gray ominous clouds in the background, it bought out the lovely blue glows from the ice.

Truly amazing.
