Hello Dave,

not in your league with this capture I am afraid, but I personally liked this one more than most of the others I took on this trip as it captures what was a bit a unnerving period. Slowly going through the ice with it banging on the ships hull as it passes is not for the faint hearted is it ? The Arctic is interesting, but not in the same league as the Antarctic I suspect.

MS Expedition approx 78 degres North

I wouldn't place myself in a higher league - I was lucky to get very photogenic weather.  Personally I'd wouldn't trade off the Arctic against the Antarctic. They're different, and equally entrancing.  You'd not have much chance to get to 78 South on a commercial trip, and you'd be unlikely to experience sea ice like that in the Antarctic Pensinsula in summer.  Or indeed meet many polar bears...  (and even if you did, they'd be so full of penguin they'd have sunk )
