Absolutely Beautiful to see - Nature - nothing like it. Thank you to those out there bringing the pictures into my kitchen for my 4 year old (the next generation) to see! Much appreciated!

St Andrews Bay is in South Georgia rather than on the Antarctic Peninsula. The background in the image also speaks to South Georgia where I was 2 weeks ago.
