Tomorrow will close out the final shoreside visit to the Antarctic Peninsula. The light photographers dream of has been very elusive in the southern ocean. It’s now 10pm and our ship has been hanging out with a group of 20-30 humpback whales that have been gorging themselves on krill in the Bransfield Straight. That comes on the heels of a day filled with gray and blue shades, icebergs, glaciers, seals, whales, and giant views of Neko Harbor. In 24 hours we begin the two day traverse of the famous and tumultuous Drake Passage. Weather reports indicate that day two might put to the test all the scopolamine patches stuck behind the ears of many passengers. I’ll be included in that group.
