dream destination: Antarctica

Antarctica Shoot from Matt Rutherford on Vimeo.

The biggest challenge in the quest to hit all seven continents is Antarctica.  Not only is it astronomically expensive to join a cruise to the South Pole, but the environment is so fragile that there has been talk about suspending, or at the very least significantly limiting, commercial expeditions.  I’m not sure if I’ll ever get there, but that won’t stop me from ogling all of the incredible photography and video footage that’s out there.

My favorite part of this video is the penguin just staring at the sleeping seals (~3:00).  Whoa there, lil buddy– let sleeping seals lie.

Ack!  Let’s just look at some photos of baby emperor penguins and call it a day.  Has anyone out there ever been to Antarctica/have any desire to go?
