Trip To Antarctica

Two  months ago my wife and I returned from our third trip to Antarctica. I guess we never get tired of it. It truly is another world down there. We saw three different types of penguins : gentoos,  adeles, and chinstraps. Humpback whales and orcas were seen quite often. In addition we saw many leopard , crabeater, and weddell seals. The icebergs were like pieces of art work.

All the photos were taken with my Nikon D810 along with a Nikon 70mm-200mm, 2.8 and a 300mm pf with a 1.4 tc.
