Icebergs and Whales
There is something so tangible you can feel it, it's quiet, almost silent as you drift along.  you are embracing the wonder of Antarctica's presence.  A presence that is wearable - like favourite knit sweater or a hoody that's just too perfect, it embraces you.  I am in the most remote of places yet I feel at home. It's a strange thing to feel so connected to a world that is worlds away.

Reposted from @daisygilardini -  Northern Rockhopper penguins live on the remote islands of the Tristan da Cunha group in the South Atlantic. You can only imagine my excitement when a few days ago, during a visit to a Southern Rockhopper colony in the Falkland Islands, I bumped into this beautiful penguin. 
Recent population models indicate that over the past 37 years numbers have declined by 57% and are estimated around 240’300 breeding pairs (Cuthbert 2013, TdC and RSPB unpubl. data).
The reasons of the decline are still unclear but mostly likely are connected to the warming of the oceans.

“Greenland Ice #1”, 21 x 30inches watercolour
Ancient ice is revealed above the surface after a recent calving,  and rolling of fractured icebergs. I like to paint the light captured  inside the ice  and ponder its history before it melts and is released.

When I took this position outside the bridge on a small @oneoceanexp expedition ship to shoot A series of a stunting humpback with a prime (no zoom) 300mm f:4 lens, at the beginning of the series I could include the pictorial fin in the upper right, the broad tail and the water cascading from it. #humpback @nikoncanada #oneoceanexp #nikon_d4 #travelphotography #nikkor_300f4 #wildlifephotography #expeditionphotography

A Black Browed Albatross gliding effortlessly across a stormy backdrop

Albatros are amazing seabirds that spend most of their life on the wind currents over the ocean, only going to land to breed.  The image doesn't reveal the size of these winged aviators.  The Black Browed  Albatross wingspan can be as much as 2.5 meters.  That's big.

"The giggle" In my photographic career specializing in Polar Regions, Quite often, we can find Weddell seals resting on the pebble beaches around the island. Seals usually come to land to rest and digest after spending time in the water fishing. In order to capture any kind of behaviour, you have to be very patient and simply sit, wait and be ready when the action starts, as it might last just a few seconds - just the time it takes for a quick yawn.

More Weaner magic.  Southern Elephant Seal weaners practising their sparring.  One day this skill will come in handy for the big males as they battle to establish and maintain a harem.  The fighting is intense and exhausting and sometimes life threatening.  Quite the spectacle to watch the Beachmasters at the height of their powers.

Repost from @daisygilardini I am back home after the last 5 weeks spent in Penguin/Seal country - Falkland Islands and South Georgia. What an incredible time! I look forward to share more images in the next few weeks.
At this time of the year the elephant seal pups are so playful and funny to photograph!

After spending the full week in the Falkland Islands we are ready to embark for another great adventure in South Georgia. Thanks to Derek and Trudy to make us feel at home at Volunteer Point, a magical place that never disappoints! 
Now we ready to board the cozy Akademik Vavilov and join the OOE team for the exciting photo symposium.

I am honoured to have been recently elected as a Fellow of the Royal Canadian Geographical Society. For the past 30 years my paint brushes have led me to travel the earths 7 continents and bring back impressions and stories. When coming home after painting abroad I am always reminded how incredibly diverse and beautiful Canada is. I look forward to promote the Society’s mandate to “to make Canada better known to Canadians and to the world.”
“Agawa Falls Reflections, #7”, 22 x 30 inches, watercolour.
In northern Ontario, the Agawa canyons seasonal displays of form and colour have inspired generations of artists, most famously painted by the “Group of Seven “ in the late 1920’s. One of my favourite places to paint is at the Agawa falls in the autumn where the river plunges 90 feet and flows westward to Lake Superior.

Leap of Faith

This wonderful young #polarbear displayed amazing agility while jumping from ice pan to ice pan.  Often the smaller Ice pans looked barely big enough to hold her weight but she seemed to know they could, and they did.

A lighthouse is built around a bulb. This little bulb has the huge job of keeping people safe at sea. That's a lot of responsibility for a 2cm filament. If it weren't for the qualities and configurations of the surrounding pieces, it would be insignificant. But working as part of a team, it shines brighter than it ever could have alone.

‘Putting on hundreds of pounds of fat in the spring to last through periods of food scarcity later in the year (at the height of summer and over the winter) is the evolutionary adaptation that has allowed polar bears to live successfully in the Arctic’

Susan Crockford
Zoologist at the University of British Columbia

This was certainly true of this female Polar Bear, that had eaten so much seal she could not stand up for long, even her spine sagged under the weight. A ridiculously cropped and  over-processed photo from a distance of more than one mile, but interesting to note the condition of the bears in the Storfjorden area. They’re doing alright. We didn’t approach her, she was collared anyway. #polarbearscience #oneoceanexp #exodustravels #polarbears #svalbard

I swear this gorgeous Polar Bear was smiling for the camera

There is so much that goes into getting an opportunity like this.  From planning, traveling, knowing your gear and overcoming your fear.  On this trip with @oneoceanexp  though along with all the searching, our amazing spotters, and some good old-fashioned luck, it was our Captain that maneuvered our ship nearly silently and skilfully so not to alarm the bear and she approached us with curious enthusiasm.  An encounter I doubt one could ever forget.

That night the skies lit up! There were so many whales and the weather was peaceful.

Up close and personal. Antarctic Fur Seals were nearly hunted to extinction but now they’re back and they’re... #feisty, especially the fellas protecting their #harems.  During breeding season the beaches at South Georgia Island are cluttered with seals and penguins which together form an overwhelming noisy smelly endlessly fascinating and amusing #biomass.  #antarctica #southgeorgia #furseal #animalportrait #nature #wildlife #teeth
Each ice formation is unique. 📸@daisygilardini
