                                     Voyage to the white continent

         If Antarctica were music, it would be Mozart. Art, it would be Michelangelo. Literature, and it
         would be Shakespeare. And yet it is something even greater; the only place on earth that is
         still as it should be. May we never tame it. – Andrew Denton

        The backdrop is Ushuaia, Tierra del Fuego, the end of the world at the foot of the Andes. One world
ends and another begins as the Lyubov Orlova begins its voyage through the Beagle Channel toward the
Antarctic Convergence. Antarctica is the largest wilderness area on Earth, a place that we believe must be
preserved in its present pristine state. Expeditions to fragile and unique habitats are operated in an
environmentally responsible manner and I am privileged to have taken one small cruise to several islands
off the peninsula and to have stood on the continent itself off Paradise Harbour at Almirante Brown. One
does not realize the grandeur, majesty, awe and spectacular beauty until you see the magnificent sites for
yourself right there in the zodiac or from one of the islands. The Antarctic Treaty System has established
Antarctica as a zone of peace and science and, therefore, provides a strict Protocol for visitors. Be prepared
for severe and changeable weather. At the best of times, crossing the Drake Passage is a memorable
experience. But how can one prepare for colonies of penguins: Gentoo, Adélie, Chinstrap and in my case,
the rare appearance of a King Penguin, about three hundred miles from his usual habitat? The southern
Gerlache Strait welcomes the humpback whales, the Minkes and orcas. On rocky slopes we see big colonies
of Antarctic Blue-eyed Shags as well as the nest sites of Wilson’s Storm-petrels. Imagine mailing postcards
in the sheltered anchorage of Port Lockroy, a post office and museum, surrounded by high mountains, a
busy Gentoo Penguin rookery with a small contingent of Blue-eyed Shags that nest near the shore. Weddell
seals are often seen here and there are a fair number of whale bones on the shore, testimony to the
whaling ships of the past. As I viewed the glaciers, ice shelves, islands, bays and seas with their drifting
icebergs in various shapes and colours, I marvelled at the wonders of nature and felt blessed that I could be
there at least once in my lifetime. I wish to share some of the photographs with you which try to capture
the marvellous sites. Enjoy!
