The photograph of the month for November 2020 comes from deep in Antarctica during one of my expeditions to photograph Emperor Penguins at Gould Bay. This was a photograph I initially overlooked in my early edits and only recently discovered and processed. I am not quite sure why I missed it in my first editing passes, but it is a photograph I am extremely pleased with. The combination of golden light with soft cool snow and the juxtaposition of the adult and chick really work well together. The key to these type of photographs is patience. Once I find the wildlife I want to work with and have chosen the background it is then a matter of setting up and waiting for the right gesture or moment. In this case, the call of the adult Emperor and the lowered head of the chick work perfectly in opposition to each other.
