Being so far South in December in the Southern Hemisphere means that it doesn’t really get dark during the night, it just gets less bright. One of the evenings while navigating towards our new location on the Antarctica Peninsula I happened to look outside towards the back of the ship and witness this.
It was probably the most intense sunset I have ever seen (with the possible exception of one sunset I’ve seen in Iceland). The sky just looked like it was on fire and the only sad thing was that there were no close-by icebergs to photograph being lit by this beautiful light. I pulled out my 70-300mm lens and although the iceberg is not so well defined, I just love the colour of the sky. If you roll-over the original you will notice that I have not done much to this image in terms of post-processing.
