From a young age it was a dream of mine to visit Antarctica, and in 2012 my wish was granted as I sailed with Sea Shepherd to the Southern Ocean to document their efforts in protecting the whales of the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary. There is no place quite like Antarctica, and the waters that surround the continent are full of life and beauty. I have been lucky enough to have now sailed South on three seperate occasions and here are some images that attempt to convey the raw beauty of Antarctica.
