Pic ‘o the week – colors of Antarctica

Photographer Tony Beck snapped this stunning photo during a tour of the Antarctic Peninsula in January 2010 with Worldwide Quest and One Ocean Expeditions. In his words:

“These ‘iceberg alleys’ often reveal endless shapes, forms, lines and patterns of ice. Among them, we often see many shades of blue. We also find wildlife like whales, seals, penguins, and in this particular case, a South Polar Skua, perched on top of the berg.  The experience of sailing through these alleys can be exciting, inspiring, humbling and adventurous.”
