Ed Sanford's picture

Ed Sanford Sunlit Mountains, Mikkelson Harbor, Antarctica

This is another image from my recent trip to Antarctica. As we cruised Mikkelson Harbor to return to the ship, I noticed how the sun rays struck one portion of the mountains while the foreground remained in shadow. It was excellent contrast with the luminosity on the sunlit portion. Because of the cold temperatures, the ambient portion had a cool blue cast. Of course, the low sun caused the lit portion to be warmed, slightly.
