Images of the
Antarctic Peninsula and Southern Oceans

Including the Falkland Islands, South Georgia Island, and Ushuaia and Buenos Aires Argentina

The images in this gallery were taken during November and December 2002 on a trip to the Southern Oceans and Antarctic Peninsula.  The trip was organized by Wings and Oceanwide Expeditions, and included 19 days aboard the Grigoriy Mikheev, a Russian reseach vessel with an ice-strengthened hull, and a most-excellent Russian crew.  The trip started in Buenos Aires, and included an all-too-brief stay in Ushuaia, Tierra del Fuego before heading out on the open seas.

Public Slide Show:  We will be presenting a program on our trip at the Mt. Diablo Audubon Society meeting on Thursday, February 6th in Walnut Creek California.  Our presentation begins at 8:05 PM.  Click the following links for directions and the program description.
