Lemaire Channel. The Antarctica scenic highlight. Steep cliffs hem in the iceberg-filled passage, which is 11 km long and just 1,600 meters wide at its narrowest point.

I hope - if you come to Antarctica – that you will see the Lemaire Strait in fine weather like this. The Antarctic Peninsula does have a lot of beautiful sceneries, but this strait is outstanding. This photo is only a 2-dimentional image of this place, and it doesn’t tell the whole story . I guess you have to see with our own eyes to believe it.

Una foto muy en tu estilo. Con una extraña simetría horizontal que nos llena de incertidumbre. Una vista que nos sobrecoge y nos retrae hacia nosotros mismos.

Clean reflection is so great that you can lose a dividing line between the real and reflected. As always, beautiful pictures of cold, inaccessible regions.

Super flot billede med god spejling. Selv om det kun er 2D, kan man godt fornemme den storslåede natur!

Hilsen Finn.

It may only be 2-dimensional Alan but it is indeed a splendid photograph and for most of us, it will have to suffice!! We just have to imagine the 3-D bit.

Thank you for giving us an opportunity to see it, and to share it with you. It is most beautiful.

Warm wishes, Hazel
