Sunrise in South Georgia

Sunrise in South Georgia

One Ocean chartered this small Russian ship to bring 71 photographers and enthusiasts to South Georgia, deep in the
South Atlantic, home to several sub-Antarctic species including king penguins and the wandering albatross, the largest wingspan bird on earth. We had just departed the ship on a zodiac to photograph the sunrise from shore, when we saw this impressive scene immediately behind us. The driver, also a photographer, stopped our small craft to allow us to capture this striking image.
