What is your most memorable Antarctic experience?
“An intimate moment with an elephant seal weaner is hard to forget. Being face-to-snoot with a 400lbs baby, seeing my reflection in his big, black eyes, I thought we were having a moment. I made a few images of this cutie, and put down the camera. And then what does he do? BIG sneeze into my open mouth. “
