    South Georgia is as wild as it gets. It is also a challenging place to photograph. How do you do such a place justice? How do you find a singular story amidst the chaos of thousands upon thousands of creatures in one place? These three penguins were a gift - perched on a rock in the middle of a shallow pool, surrounded by their comrades and the dramatic peaks in the background just as the light was breaking through. They did not mind my company and happily let me shoot at 24mm

    I love Your Shot photographer Stephanie Thomson's comment: "This is such a beautiful moment worth waiting for Jonathan. I can feel the love and sense of protection coming from the penguins as they stand alone on that rock. The slight sunburst and break in the clouds is an excellent frame that emphasizes your subjects beautifully. I also love your title, as if these penguins are huddling together at the World's End. Beautiful work!"
