South Georgia 2015

7th - 22nd November 2015

This amazing adventure was organised by Wild Photo Travel. We sailed between Port Stanley in the Falkland Islands and South Georgia which takes two and half days each way. On arrival we sailed along the southern coastline of the island and during the 8+ day visit we made many zodiac landings to photograph the thousands of penguins, albatrosses, petrels, seals and other wildlife that this extreme island is well known for. Due to the prefect weather, we made an unprecedented 14 landings which allowed us 60 hours onshore photography along these amazing beaches. The images displayed here are just a very small selection taken during this visit.
