Antarctica at Last!

January 2005

A dream came true. I had the privilege to join the Canadian ‘2004 Students on Ice Antarctica Expedition’ as an Education Team member. A record of 80 students and 20 staff participated of a very memorable journey to the far South. We lived for 10 days onboard the Polar Star, a powerful icebreaker specially chartered for the occasion.

It was my first encounter with Antarctica’s breathtaking landscapes and its wildlife. My photographic skills were put under a serious test along my new digital camera (Nikon D70) that performed better than I expected.

I lectured and gave workshops on Nature Photography onboard and during the landings. Since most of the students had digital cameras, at the end of each day we would get together in the ship’s lecture room to share and select the images for the expedition’s website. People from all over the world, especially the student’s families, were able to follow our expedition’s progress day by day. Feel what it was like being there at www.studentsonice.com.

I am very grateful to Geoff Green and Barbra Segal, who made possible my participation in the expedition.

Check out the new Antarctica Galleries where you will find images of the natural wonders we saw.
