    Captain Krüß set down the NatGeo Explorer on some fast ice at the Lallemand Fjord. The ice held fast to the sides of the fjord with 2,000 ft of water below. I imagined this shot while walking on the ice and ran atop the bridge. An expedition report said that the ship sailed here a few weeks later, only finding broken ice. I experience overwhelming nature in a surreal way, so I am still trying to explain why Antarctica changed me. I have no choice but to try to understand through my artwork.

    A visit to Antarctica is indeed life-changing and you did a nice job at capturing that here. The ship leads our eye to a vast landscape dotted with explorers that give color and perspective, while your story explains how you planned your photo as well as your experience here. Great work, Andra!
