One of the crew said that she describes Antarctica as the Alter of God.
One night while I was alone watching the sun set I heard a “whoooosh” blow sound to my left. As I looked over the starboard side of the ship a Minke whale glided into the ocean without even a hint of splash or waves. It was incredible in the deep cold of the moment alone to have a private conversation (albeit Brief) with a whale. I took this shot soon after the whale appeared.
