South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands: November 2019

Had the privilege of experiencing first hand the remarkable group of Island known as South Georgia last month for three days! A fair amount of clear weather and following seas meant we could make smooth landings in zodiac’s without too much swell. This is an exceptionally remote, wild and ruggedly beautiful part of our earth… and a place to experience nature first hand. In fact, you literally feel that you are participating in a wild nature documentary, not just as an observer, but actually being right in there! These images are just a fraction of what I shot and I hope this post can partly convey just a tiny amount of the wonderment of being there. Places visited and landings made include, Saisbury Plains, Gold Harbour, Right Whale Bay, St. Andrews Bay, Grytviken, Stromness and the awesome Drygalsky Fjord with the three glaciers.

  1. Such an amazing collection of images that will live with you forever, Ian. They are your best yet if that is possible.

    • Hi Greg…thank you for that kind comment…I am sitting in my hotel room in Paro, Bhutan…its 4.30am and I have had enough sleep! Trying to catch up on some back log! I have only edited a few Antarctic images and have not had the time to do more. Fly home tonight via Bangkok. Catch up soon with you both… warmest regards . Ian
