Opposite to the North

sf_antarctica_91

Where beauty coincides with grace, where desert meets the ocean, where few go and many strive to return. To explore, camp, and climb, to watch icebergs roll, see penguins molt, to marry, to acquire a true appreciation for wellies, to ride in zodiacs, feel the swells of the drake passage, to be humbled, to be silenced, to watch seals sleep, whales breach, to witness nature grow and yet stay still, to find a piece of perfection. Antarctica is the most beautiful place on Earth.
