Antarctica

Karen and Rob fulfilled a long-time dream in November 2004 when we spent 10 days visiting the Antarctic Peninsula aboard the M/V Orlova.  The wildlife and scenery were truly spectacular, and simply being in such a remote place visited by so few people was awe-inspiring.  Below are some of the better photos we took during our once-in-a-lifetime expedition to the White Continent.
