Close-Up of the South Atlantic

Falkland Islands, South Georgia, Antarctic Peninsula - one of the least touched and most beautiful parts of the world.  One of the highlights of my life was to visit these islands a few years ago, where animals and birds roam freely with no fear of man.  Here is a sample of close-ups of what we saw.
