An emperor penguin is framed by a hole in an iceberg at Snow Hill Island rookery, off the east coast of the Antarctic peninsula by Sue Flood, one of the world’s only women to specialise in polar photography.
An *epic* second trip of the season, this time an Antarctic Classic and for me the opportunity to work as a camping and kayaking guide.
We had a beautiful sunset/sunrise camping on Orne Island in amazingly calm conditions, landed with Adelie penguins on 10m+ thick sea ice in the Weddell Sea, bashed through ice on our way to Port Lockroy (and even more ice leaving through the Neumeyer Channel), and kayaked through brash on a bluebird day in Cierva Cove. Incredible!
Always love finding fresh Antarctic travel videos as its such a rare, unknown landscape.

Wild Antarctica was filmed and produced in 4K by New Zealand cinematographers Aliscia Young and Richard Sidey during several short expeditions to the Antarctic Peninsula in early 2017. A special UAV permit was obtained to capture the aerial perspectives.
