I took this picture just 30 seconds before midnight in the summer January light of Antarctica. The beautiful soft pastel tones are very reminiscent of Alaska under similar low-angle light conditions. As our icebreaker cruised through this beautiful scene along the western side of the Antarctic Peninsula, I resisted sleep long enough to enjoy such a view. Sleep management, or just lack of the latter, was also reminiscent of Alaska. In the north, as in the south, the summer unfolds with nightless skies, often requiring a schedule shift that prioritizes photography from the hours of 10pm to 3am. But that becomes very difficult with a daily work schedule, like on the this ship.
