Love this shot, it is so adorable I laughed out loud. Thanks for all the effort it took, all your skills, and most of all for sharing! Great capture.
It was worth every uncomfortable moment the photographer probabley had waiting for those penguins to perfictly fill the space and compose the shot.
This is just great. Cool and artistic.
I was looking for a nice photo for my password picture and I came across this! I chose it without any seconds thought :)
The Three Musketeers...
"Harold, tell your son to quit looking like an idiot in front of the nice man's camera," said Imajean, staring hopelessly at her son as he slid across the ice on his stomach, oblivious to the wink of the camera lens a few yards away.
"Merv, d'you hear what your mother says? You look like a schmuck on the ground like that. Get up and waddle like a normal penguin. Merv. Listen to your mother."
But Merv didn't listen; he was too busy imagining himself representing Antartica in skeleton at the 2018 Winter Olympics, sliding across the finish line and becoming the first ever penguin to win gold in the sport. No, Merv didn't listen to his mother at all.
This photo is just too, too cool in every sense of the word. Love it. The ice, the framing, the patience, the anticipation, all wonderful. So well composed and presented. Thanks so much for sharing and congrats. Cherer.
Just such a wonderful shot,beautifully framed. It must be very rewarding to have photographed these penguins with results like this. Congrats:Keith. j.e.s.........
The porthole of blue ice framing the mauve and golden hues in the sky of this Antarctic landscape would make this a perfect photo, but the charming presence of the three penguins, with one of them tobogganing on its belly, just makes this a sublime image. So wonderful!
