Antarctica, Falkland & South Georgia / by Asgeir Helgestad

Back home after three weeks in Antarctica shooting a commercial/product film for the cruise-line Hurtigruten (see video). It is interesting to see what Norwegians left down in Antarctica after they killed their last whales. 

 South Georgia is one of my favorite destinations on this planet. King penguins in Fortuna Bay.

 A dream came true when this bird flew alongside the ship. Wandering Albatross known to be the bird that has the widest wingspan of all birds - up to 3.6 meters! The length of this bird  is about 1.3 meters.
