Adelies In The Snow

Adorable Adelies of Commonweatlh Bay
27 images

26 days on the Professor Kromov and most of them at sea being tossed about the Southern Ocean. Eventually we hit the ice in Antarctica, and with it come the penguins. Sometimes they travel solo, often they roam in packs. Always they are sensationally cute, tiny little characters facing the harsh conditions of Antarctica. Adelies are my favourites, without a doubt.

"Photography is about showing other people how to see, to share the beauty of life. It's not a job, it's a lifestyle. We only get one lifetime, one chance to add some light into the world. Photography competitions are mostly silly. Cats are excellent."
