[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The term sea refers to certain large bodies of water, but there is inconsistency as to its precise definition and application. Most commonly, a sea may refer to a large expanse of saline water connected with an ocean, but it is also used sometimes of a large saline lake that lacks a natural outlet, e.g. the Caspian Sea. Colloquially, the term is used as a synonym for ocean. Additionally, large lakes, such as the Great Lakes, are occasionally referred to as inland seas.

The Southern Ocean, also known as the Great Southern Ocean, the Antarctic Ocean and the South Polar Ocean, comprises the southernmost waters of the World Ocean south of 60° S latitude. The International Hydrographic Organization has designated the Southern Ocean as an oceanic division encircling Antarctica. Geographers disagree on the Southern Ocean's northern boundary or even its existence (see below), sometimes considering the waters part of the South Pacific, South Atlantic, and Indian Oceans instead.

Hi Krzysztof . This looks so calm and pure. You have used the light so well which has given birght natural colours. Well done TFS.

Czesc Krzysiek!

Ale masz pomysly :-) Zamiast wyslac cos z Brazylii, chcesz nas jeszcze bardziej zmrozic :-) Przepiekne zdjecie, bardzo 'czyste', z fantastycznym niebem. Zastanawiam sie, jak wygladaja gwiazdy na takim niebie - to musi byc widok! No i zorze...

Hi Chris,
A nice capture of this beautiful landscape of the ice continent. Superb composition and nice hues. Thanks a lot for sharing.
