Housemate in Antarctica photos: Scenery

Aside from having some amazing animals, Antarctica has breathtaking scenery.

A glacier out behind the station that people there like to hike up.

Scientists on a boat going by the glacier.

Sunset (some time around midnight) casts a gorgeous glow on the glacier.

Sunset lights the sky over the Antarctic waters and mountains.

I hope someday to be able to go to Antarctica and see its beautiful landscapes and remarkable animals myself. But it was really nice having a friend there. I was always impressed with the photos he sent me, and thanks to video chat I got to see some live video feed of penguins, seals, glaciers, and Antarctic sunsets. Video conferencing with the penguins. Almost like being there.

Well that's all for the Antarctica photos. I hope you enjoyed them as much as I did. Sorry again about my paranoid watermarks. I'm back from my cruise now, so I'll be playing catch up for a bit, then I'll return you to my regularly scheduled blog posts and tweeting. Not that I have a regular schedule or anything, but uh...yeah. See you around!

I know. The glaciers, the mountains, the ocean are all just gorgeous. One time the Housemate brought his computer out so I could watch the sunset via video chat. It had to stay close to the buildings for the signal, so it wasn't this good a view, but it was really sweet of him.
