Penguin Paparazzi
Photo By David Schultz

  • Title: Penguin Paparazzi
  • State/Province/Region:
  • Country:
  • Brief Directions: Get on the ship in Ushuaia, Argentina and head South! Hang on as you cross the Drake Passage.
  • Best Season: Spring
  • Description: I've visited my favorite place, Antarctica, nine times now and this was one of my most memorable experiences, photographing the land/icescape along with the wonderfully curious wildlife. After spending several hours on the ice this particular day I stopped shooting for a minute and backed away from my gear as a group of Emperor penguins approached. Again knowing how curious they are I figured there might be a chance to grab a fun shot and turned out to be better than I could have imagined.
  • Gear: Nikon D2X, Nikon 200-400mm, Really Right Stuff BH44, Gitzo tripod

    Wonderful night/star picture Matt. The colors, and detail with the rocks in the foreground are very nice.

    Beautiful Image! Astro/Night photography seems to be quite a challenge, and you captured a remarkable landmark with it! Hoping to give this a try on next photo trip to the Hawaiian Islands. Will...

    "Absolutely in the right place at the right time". So very rare to see a double rainbow let alone have your camera with perfect glowing conditions.. Great capture
