Antarctic Photographic Exhibition Showcases Icy Wilderness

The Antarctic Photography Exhibition has opened at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery as part of the Australian Antarctic Festival. All photographs were taken in recent years in Antarctica and the sub-Antarctic and were submitted by professional and amateur photographers from Greenland, Italy, New Zealand, Australia and Antarctica. Australian Antarctic Festival director Paul Cullen said the competition was narrowed down to 24 images to make up the exhibition. I am pleased to say the exhibition includes two of my personal favourite images from Antarctica (that have also been named as finalists).Ice Fortress HMAS Penguin Pool
