    My personal relationship with this shot goes well beyond the unique experience of traveling to Antarctica. My father was a keen photographer & was always ecstatic to pass on his knowledge and support me in my learning 2 years ago he suddenly suffered a brainstem haemorrhage and was unable to recover. The trip was taken by my mother & myself to get a way and remember him. Taken on his camera, this shot will always remind me of what a great man he was and be thankful for the time he gave me.

    Thank you for sharing the back story to this image. Your father would be very proud of your photo — I love how simply you shot this frame, composing the penguins small on this iceberg. Understanding why you were on this trip witnessing these penguins and who you were with, makes me feel how special this photo must be for you. And makes me like this photo even more.
