What an awesome view, once again from your lens. Like some of your previous landscapes I admire the details of all the elements of nature captured and shared in one image. Just love the depth of field and how one can look right down into the valley. Looking at all of this, makes me want to shout out: "I also want to be there" I think it would be just great standing where the two penquins in the front of image are, looking up at the snow covered mountains and once again appreciate the wonder of the Creation. A tranquil landscape, which reminds me of the animation movie "Happy Feet. Kind regards and thanks for sharing.

Amazing capture with the King Penguins lined up nicely for you!! Excellent DOF showing the impressive peak beyond. Great sharpness and fine colours too.

if ever there was a landscape which is dripping with drama and content, then it's this one! Awesome mate, a perfect POV and excellent DOF...amazing place, hard to believe it's still classified as the UK!

There is so much in this marvelous scene that I didn't know what to look at first. The penguins are wonderful - and the scenery is amazing. You captured this perfectly and composed it to show it off to its best advantage.

What an impressive photo! The Penguins as well as the mountains. But I think the place is a mistake. Teh colours are very natural, in spite of a scanned slide. It all looks fantastic.

Excelente espectáculo el que nos presentas James. No solamente por la colonia de pingüinos, sino por todo el conjunto. Reflejas bien la grandeza del paisaje y las descomunales dimensiones de esas montańas que casi se alzan en vertical. Una fotografía que te mete en la escena y te hace sońar con esos lugares.
Saludos: Josep Ignasi.

meraviglioso scenario racchiuso in questa splendida composizione verticale con il primo piano di questa colonia di bellissimi pinguini punteggiati di giallo e BG della grande montagna innevata che si perde nelle nuvole, ottima la nitidezza.

Excellent scaned picture from your archives; good sharp details of both the mountain and penguins, good lighting and colours.

A unique blend of harsh geography and interesting penguins.
The vertical presentation was well chosen and really puts it all into perspective.
Excellent sharpness and details.
The two in the foreground appear to be holding hands.LOL.

I'm sometimes amazes how you manage to squeeze so many things in a single shot...and this is one of those situations :)
You have here a lovely penguin colony as well as 2 interesting geological formations - the u-shape valley and that impressive horn peak - which you so nicely describe in your note.
The overall composition here is impeccable and the details you managed (from FG all the way to the BG) are terrific, too.
Bravo and TFS

You have made a long way to reach these attractive places. The subject deserves worst it. Amazing, crisp details of the image, colours, transparency of the image, POV and composition are brilliant. Exposure is spot on. Bravo.

A great shot of a colony of King Penguins and their nesting habitat with the Horn peak as a fine BG.
Great that you scanned this S. Georgian scene for us to view: thanks!

It's weird to think that this was actually taken in the UK :-)
Very good, original capture showing these King Penguins' habitat very well.
Sharp with great detail.
I love all the different layers.
Very well done,

After the Antarctic Peninsula we went to the Galapagos - and never got back on that side...
I am stunned about the quality of your image scanned from a slide. (Ours were ruined by the heat and dry air on the farm.)
The geological information contained in one single photo is immense.
It is amazing - how the penguins are lined up as if "on parade" - and I wonder, where the nests are?
Your portfolio gives me lots of pleasure - seeing places, where I have been - and visiting new countries.
Every single image contains a wealth of information and is perfectly presented.
I thank you for putting pen to paper for my green beetle and wish you a happy and healthy 2010.
