Picture of the day: For the better (natures tranformation)

This image is from South Georgia, it is a young penguin that is loosing its brown furry coat, and getting the normal fur and colours. I was a little scared at first, but the biologist at the trip explained that it was all for the best, and you cold compare the hardships with a kind of bad flu. But after a while they are the great creatures that we enjoy so much.

Picture of the day: Magnificent Antarctica

I have so many images to share, so many stories about the great white continent to tell.  So here I go. Todays image is just a little “moment” from the Antarctic peninsula, and as you can see, the weather was ever-changing. But is was just adding to the great experience.

Picture of the day: If Your Pictures Aren’t Good Enough, You’re Not Close Enough

That is a quote from the famous war photographer Robert Capa, and as a lover of natural photographer I enjoy the usage of long telezoom lenses. But sometimes it just do not work. The shot of the day is from the Falkland Islands, and we where visiting a Rockhopper penguin colony, and the penguins where very close. So I got my fish eye lens out, and lie down on the ground. The rockhoppers was intrigued, and they came up close. So I guess this image is shot at a distance of between 5-10 cm. Good fun.
