Before visiting the white continent I thought I had already seen truly impressive landscapes in many places around the world, and I was simply expecting Antarctica to be a step ahead of most of them.
I was wrong. The majestic beauty of Antarctica cannot be compared to anywhere else on this Earth. It is a place in its own league.
On this expedition, the plan had been to scuba dive and interact with penguins and the leopard seal underwater, but after a diving accident we had to abort the mission and stay on land, which gave me the opportunity to focus more on landscape photography instead of underwater photography, as was planned.
Entering a mystic state of mind, provoked by the sheer overwhelming beauty of the landscape and this otherworldly silence, is almost inevitable.
On a bad day, the wind, snow, and extreme cold makes it almost impossible for a human being to stay outside, but these conditions add so much to the place, and the landscape becomes full of movement, clouds, and drama — a perfect mix for the kind of photography that I love.
