For those who don’t follow me on Facebook: Late november, beginning of December 2016 I made a gorgeous photo trip to South Georgia and the Antarctic Peninsula. I will post some excerpts here on my blog. More photos can be seen in the portfolio section of this website.
Our very first landing in South Georgia was at Salisbury Plain, breeding ground to large numbers of King Penguins.
The breeding cycle of a King Penguin takes about 3 years, and there are always many big brown fluffy chicks around in the so-called creches.
South Georgia is all about the numbers. Standing on a hill I zoomed in on the kings to get a feel of density. Adults and brown fluffy chicks, all packed together. Almost like an abstract painting.
