Not sure how they do it, but partners here are for life! The though part is to find the right one :)

Taken at South Georgia Island
Sound and smell of thousand and thousand penguins is really something no one will ever forget in life.

Honestly, I miss that cloudy, rainy, tiring peaceful day. Wish I could get back there tomorrow to get together with them again.

I dedicate this photograph to the true partnership in life.
With all my love,

ps. I placed here as Antartcic Peninsula because the shot was taken on that trip, but South Georgia belong to UK.
A monopod was used instead of a tripod

Fantastic shot and note Wellington. Great color and composition. I wish I had smilies left to give you and wish I could step into this photo. Well done! TFS, Lori

Hi Wellington,

frankly speaking this photo is not technically one of the best at least according to my monitor, but first it shows us a continent not much photographed and second the graphic effect given by the chaotic mass of penguins is intriguing.Beautiful the colours with the yellow to capture the scene.I would crop the BG to give a more abstract effect to the image that is anyway very interesting even in this way.



Bom dia Wellington.
Que bela imagem e linda dedicatória (de que me sinto partícipe)!
Pouco mais há para dizer além de louvar o impacto visual e emocional.
