Golden paradise

WILDERNESS LANDSCAPE – Winner

Early whalers to the Antarctic Peninsula aptly named Paradise Bay as a place of splendour and respite from the terrors of the Drake Passage. As we were leaving Paradise Bay for the challenges of the passage, we were treated to a brilliant sunset draped over this amazing landscape.
