The first photograph of the month for 2018 was from my most recent Antarctica White Nature Expedition (Read the Trip Report). Taken at Cuverville Island with the Canon EOS 1DXMKII and Canon 300mm f2.8L IS MKII, this photograph was the result of just a little bit of patience. I knew I wanted to use the dramatic spires of the distant mountains to help give me a great sense of scale and environment. It was then just a matter of waiting for a lone penguin to walk across the ridge line. As it turned out I did not have to wait very long for this little guy who stopped right in the middle to pose.
