    Kayaker paddling her way through the brush ice off the coast of Antarctica. A kayak is the perfect way to move on the water and for water-based photography. You have a low angle, it's easy to manoever in small spaces, and it's very quiet - with an engine you might scare off the wildlife, but with a kayak you can get much closer. It's also the best way to feel connected to the landscape - you feel the cold, the water, every single piece of ice hitting your kayak.

    An adventurous and technical photograph to produce, but this was excellently coordinated. The large ice blocks lead your eye to the kayaker, whose colors are stark contrast against the landscape. I appreciate the effort and enthusiasm behind creating an image like this. Wonderful, Marsel!
