[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [Portuguese]
For Valentines Day, I choose a moment of solitude, that I witnessed 4 years ago while anchored in Arctowisky peninsula in Antarctica waiting for the weather to improve.

There were 2 whales jumping for fun in the middle of that huge bay. I know it was a gift to be there at that precise time, for which I'm very grateful.

Technically, isn't a perfect shot, but considering the freezing temperatures (bellow 20'C) and the strong winds, it was a decent catch.

Happy Valentines day.

Cheers,
Wellington

Hi Wellington

So few uploads from Antarctica so good to see one more. Great graphism & an incredible capture of the humpback whales. Tfs!

Bom dia Wellington,

Estamos de volta à este gelado porém belo lugar graças às suas fotos.

E, assim, podemos apreciar uma fotografia bem interessante, rica em luz, com uma bela tonalidade de azul e bem emoldurada.

Parabéns e abraços,
Sergio

Bom dia Wellington
Outra boa foto desse lugar fantastico.
Grande abraco
Ralf

Eu juro que ainda me lembro dessa serie, Wellington. Fotografias muito boas e exclusivas.Verdadeiramente apaixonante viajar por lá com o seu olhar. Quase que é certo que nunca lá irei...mas deve ser uma aventura extraordinária. Esta sua composição vibra de azul e branco e, nos encanta pela singularidade...pode ter falhas mas tem o carimbo das grandes aventuras. O amor também tem muito de aventura... e de águas crispadas, de vez enquando.Adorei a sua escolha ,...esta solidão tão gélida mas encantadora.
Happy Valentine day to you.
What a journey
Um abraço

Boa tarde caro Wellington,
Só me restou a chance de subscrever todos os comentários que estão acima do meu, todos concordes em enfatizar a beleza dessas imagens do mundo da solidão e do frio, de que você tem feito uma brilhante crônica.
Abraço,
R.

A nice moment you have caught here, Wellington!

Good use of natural light and above all, perfect spotted and well captured.
Nice timing and comparatively nice clarity and contrasts to the surroundings.
Well done!

Um abracos,
Paras

Hi Wellington,

The distance between the whale and the coast is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of a section of the whale and of the coast. There is a good contrast between the colors of the scene. Have a nice day.
