Photo Gallery: Antarctic Sunsets

During my days in Antarctica I felt like I was moving within a landscape painting, created with a palette limited to blues and whites.  The exception was the late evening, as the sun began to set.  The palette opened to include a range of pastel colours, softening the light and providing an incredible backdrop to the floating ice and occasional whale or penguin.  The sun didn’t set for long in Antarctica before it rose again and it was a special moment to be outside on deck.

  1. Your pictures are breathe taking. I can imagine what it feels like.

  2. I think it is official….the Antarctic is going on the bucket list! Your photos are absolutely stunning. Thank you for bringing me here!

  3. Never seen a sunset in Antarctica! I was always there in the summer. Once I stayed until the 10th of February or so, and in that case the sun was touching the horizon every night. The clouds were colored in orange and it was wonderful.
    Your photos are beautiful.

    • Thank you! Yes, being there in December meant we were never in complete darkness but experienced a couple of sensational sunsets that were worth being outside in the cold at 11pm for! I’m looking forward to experiencing 24 hour daylight in the Arctic this summer, I imagine it will feel quite surreal.

  4. It looks surreal! The colour of the icebergs is unbelievable!

  5. exactly what I was going to say: these photos are just so surreal. Wow
