These are chinstrip penguins on Half Moon Island, Antarctica. It was bleak in this blizzard, but beautiful – and an extraordinary honour to be so close to these little soldiers! They are unperturbed by the conditions, thriving in their rocky nests, while we onlookers were starting to huddle ourselves! My camera batteries were not enjoying the bitter temperature, so I was lucky to get a few shots. The video camera packed it in really quickly!
