The journey through my photographic memories continues and a couple of BBC News articles about Antarctica prompted me to relive the two wonderful trips I have made to the extreme south – one to the Antarctic Peninsula and then an extended trip to the Falkland Islands, South Georgia and Antarctica. I have posted a number of images of my second trip but I came across some photographs I still enjoy from the first trip, as well as some previously unpublished shots from the latter expedition. The first four images are from the first trip in 2013 and the rest from 2016. I should note that although I have titled the images “Antarctica” for ease of reference, some of them were taken en route to Antarctica, rather than on the Peninsula.
And then my final image, the Image of the Week is another Chinstrap Penguin shot which for me, not only captures the character and sensitivities of these beautiful creatures, but also offers a comment on the current circumstances we find ourself in with the Global Coronavirus Pandemic.
My name is Alison Price and for the past ten years I have travelled the world photographing wildlife, including Alaska, Antarctica, Borneo, Botswana, the Canadian Arctic, Kenya, Rwanda, South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
