Antarctica day!

December first is not only the day when you are supposed to change the batteries in the fire alarms (did you?) – it is also Antarctica day! To celebrate that I asked Nadine and Kjersti to send me their favorite photos from Antarctica – so please enjoy!

Nadine’s favorite #1:  A Southern Giant-petrel sails over pancake ice while the sun sets over Dronning Maud Land (Photo: N. Steiger)
Nadine’s favorite #2: This beautiful anemone was captured by the camera of an ROV (remotely operated vehicle) at the floor of the Southern Ocean at several thousand meter depth during my cruise to the Dronning Maud Land in 2019 (Photo: ROV Ægir6000, processed by Rudi Caeyers)

 

Kjersti’s favorite: Socially distanced penguins on the only Corona-free continent (Photo: K. Daae)

 

I managed to get my favorite icebergs down to these two…

… but it was just impossible to chose between the penguins – so here’s a bunch of them!
