Antarctic rainbow

WILDERNESS LANDSCAPE

As we cruised around in Zodiacs on an amazingly calm morning, a circular rainbow was created as the sun’s rays passed through ice crystals in the atmosphere. I believe God has reserved Antarctica as a special place that needs to be protected. No photograph can do it justice – it’s a place that has to be experienced to be fully appreciated.
