New Island: The Falklands

The last stop on our journey turned out to be spectacular in every way. Like the saying goes, they saved the best for the last. After a mile walk across the island, we came into a cove filled with albatross, rockhoppers and blue-eyed shags. It was a cacaphony of sounds, abundant with wildlife and dazzling the eyes as the sunlit waves crashed against the rocks.. National Geographic photographer, Flip Nicklin had more fun than anyone shooting the variety of wildlife that presented itself. It was almost as if they knew he was a famous photographer as one by one each species came to pose for his expert eye.  Sadly, it was eventually time to go and my last picture is of the Explorer sitting in the harbor waiting to take me home.
