I’m just packing my bags for an 8 day trip to Greenland when I receive an email from National Geographic saying ‘Congratulations! your Photo Lost on the ice was selected for today’s Daily Dozen’. Each an every day, National Geographic editor Jeanne Modderman scans through the millions of images added to their Your Shot site. to be selected in their top 12 images of the day is a real honour and the 12 pictures all have a chance of then being printed in the international magazine. This is the 6th occasion that I’ve been published by National Geographic and I’m as delighted as the first time.
The picture in question, Lost on the ice, was taken in the spectacular Drygalski Fjord in South on my recent trip to the Falklands Islands and South Georgia (back in November 2015). The image shows a lone Gentoo penguin standing on some drifting sea ice in the fjord – there were no other penguins around and he/she just seemed so lost at sea!
You can see more of my photos from the Falklands Islands and South Georgia as well as my other published images on my National Geographic Your Shot page. My book from the expedition is also available to purchase and view on Blurb.
