Iceberg Alley.jpg

If you go through iceberg alley at 5AM.... this is what you get!!
(needless to say, "in a clear day", which in Antartica happens to be very rare, as anyone that has been there can tell you).
Another great characteristic to take advantage of as a photographer is that sunrises and sunsets will last an "eternity" compare to what we are used to see. Closer to the equator, the sun will rise more perpendicular to the horizon, so the magical colors would only last a couple of minutes at best. In the Antartica and closer to the poles, the sun rises more "parallel" to the horizon so it will stay barely above the horizon for long time and those colors and great light will last forever. If you are a will get a treat!!!!
During this sunrise we were photographing for over "an hour"!
