Tierra Del Fuego, Isla Martillio much more of Antarctic type landscape than your classic Argentina. Protagonist is a Magellanic penguin gazing across Beagle Chanel.

Hi Radu!
This remainds me old books about Antarctica I read in my childhood. Fantastic photo! I love composition with distant mountains and lonely bird. It's as good as your famous pictures from Ethiopia, but much colder :-)

Hello Radu,

What a wonderful picture you are offering us here! A lonely penguin (where are the others???) on a no-snow ground! He will have a long long ride before reaching the snow where the mountains are! Great composition and pov!!! TFS,

Michel

This is a nice shot Radu but I think I would prefer the penguin to be about face as I´m a person who is more dedicated to the animal itself than the environment, but here in this picture I think you captured expresion with the Penguin facing the mountain, its as though it were thinking ´Were do I go from here?¨. Very nicely done. :)
