G Adventures

While exploring Antarctica aboard the M/S Expedition, the folks over at G Adventures snapped this wild perspective of a Gentoo penguin attacking their GoPro camera. The photo was shared on the M/S Expedition Twitter account where they regularly document the sights of ongoing adventure cruises. Related: an eagle steals a GoPro camera.

The Australasian Antarctic Expedition team explored Antarctica from 1911 through 1914, studying geology, meteorology, and mapping unknown lands. Here, a photograph by Frank Hurley shows the team meteorologist C.T. Madigan with an incredibly thick ice mask after a day of weathering the elements. Here’s another more extreme example. The photo is from the National Library of Australia Commons which recently made several hundred historical images available online.
