I love the contrast you captured here, with the green grass in the foreground and the iceberg far behind it. This small island really is in the middle of nowhere by the way! Did you visit it on your way to Antarctica?

Cheers, Tomas

Thank you Tomas. This is one of my favorite photos, the elephant seals had a good pose and I managed to get the iceberg in the back.

This was a separate trip, visiting the New Zealand subantarctic islands starting from the southern part of the South Island on New Zealand. This island, that belongs to Australia, is around 1200 km away and half-way to the Antarcica.

Cheers, Mats.

Hi Mats, just had this one popping up in my conversation list again, and couldn't resist clicking on it. I once more came to the conclusion that I really like it, so reason enough to give it a shiny Y*. :)

Cheers, Tomas

Thank you Tomas for looking at this picture again and giving it a star. It's one of my favorite photos. I see you have some new Leiden photos. Cheers, Mats.
