    Always a treat to read a blog with great photographs and descriptions that address nature and the dynamic range of global warming’s impact. Very well done Martin.

    Thank you for another breath taking show. I was hoping for a reference to Ernest Shackleton as you visit Elephant Island. Is there a marker of some sort showing the location where his men survived in that upturned boat while he went for help?

      Thanks Anke! I mentioned Shackleton briefly last week, in the South Georgia episode, but we didn’t see anything where we were. I actually probably should have referred to it as Elephant Point, not island. I know both terms were used, but I think Elephant Point is correct. It’s part of Trinity Island I think.

    Lots of great images and stories, Martin, and very different from 2011.

      Thanks Murray!

      Yes, it was a very different experience to 2011. Being at the start of the season instead of the end gave us a whole different set of subjects. Conversely, we hardly saw any whales. Those days we had with like 10 pods of humpbacks were insane! Both expeditions were amazing, just for different reasons.
