Day 1 - King Penguins

King Penguins at Gold Harbor, South Georgia
John Hopkins challenged me to the ‪#‎challengeonnaturephotography‬. I don't usually play along with Facebook requests like this, but I can't say no to John. Claudia and I had the great fortune back in 2002 to visit the Antarctic Peninsula with stops on the Falkland Islands and South Georgia Island along the way. The visit to South Georgia was actually the highlight of the trip for me - amazing landscapes, wildlife, and history. I photographed these King Penguins on a snowy day at Gold Harbor on South Georgia Island.
