Hi All.

I have posted some pics under the SANAP thread, but I think that the pics belong here. Hope you enjoy it.

Hi GT.

I was fortunate to have a few opportunities to take some photos and from a perspective that not many have. We were there for 3 months from December 2011 to March 2012.

I see you are in Liberia. Came past Monrovia in early July on a ferry flight from Guinea to RSA.

Nope don't know them. We only night stopped at Spriggs Payne Airport on the way up in Sept 2011 and stopped for fuel at Robberts airport on the way down again. Met some of the guys flying for NHV at Spriggs.

Nothing dirty about Antarctica ... looks so crisp. Great sunsets. It dispells the theory that dust gives better sunsets.

@Mamba: Great pic's!
Tell me more about your camera set-up, please?
Title: Re: Antarctica Pictures
Post by: Mamba on August 14, 2013, 09:07:33 pm
Hi Wooly Bugger

I use a Canon 7D camera with a Canon 70-200 f2.8 and a Canon 15-85 f3.5 lens. In Antarctica I also made use of polarized filters.

Any more questions you are welcome to ask me.

Have a lekke evening.
