GENTOO VS. THE MOUNTAIN

GENTOO PENGUIN

PYGOSCELIS PAPUA

All alone, this Gentoo penguin faces the mountains during a snowstorm at Cuverville Island in Antarctica. The choice of framing and composition is key to providing the epic sense of scale one finds in Antarctica as well as emphasising the graphic design of the penguin and mountains.
