I spent some time in Antarctica a few weeks ago, and besides photographing landscapes, I couldn't help but document the cute penguins. I quickly got addicted to photographing them as they're just so nice to watch—their amusing movements, cute interactions with little chicks, and even their funny way of walking.
I could sit there and just watch them for hours. Being on the islands of Antarctica with the penguins and other wildlife, like seals and especially whales, was just magical. The whole experience was something unreal. We went there during a period of many penguin chicks, so I captured a bunch of them—cuteness overload!
One week after I returned, the highest temperature ever of 18.3C was recorded. When I was there, the temperature was rather normal for summer (around 0-5C). I hope that global warming will have a limited effect on Antarctica and its wildlife and our future generations will be still able to see this magical side of our planet.
On a side note: I went to Greenland last summer and global warming was really noticeable there. Let's hope we can enjoy Antarctica and it's beautiful penguins for a long, long time!
