Antarctica and South America
Jim Neale

Jim spent 5 days camping in Torres del Paine National Park. Many visitors are there to trek the “W” (~5 days) or the “O” (~8 days). They elected to explore the park via day hikes. Spectacular views.

When they were in Ushuaia (southern tip of South America), their primary objective was to see if they could find a last minute (cheaper) fare to Antarctica. They lucked out.

Jim had a few days crossing the Drake Passage. So many phenomenal moments, and penguin encounters, to reflect on. He captured the cold, rugged and isolated landscape that makes up much of the Antarctic Peninsula and the sense of awe that one gets experiencing it from a small zodiac.

Bio:
Jim was an educator and organizational development consultant – mostly at Dalhousie. He took up photography far too late in his life. Jim was a member of the Photo Guild for a couple of years, until he and his wife began travelling for most of the Guild’s season. Jim was a competitive athlete so now look for opportunities to give back to sport through photography.
