This was a no-kidding semi-dangerous trip out on the sea ice to look at the pressure ridges up close. It was a once in a lifetime experience for me. This is our group with the specially trained guide. She had a radio and rescue equipment just in case one of us broke through the ice. Yikes!
These formations were beautiful. Unfortunately it was cloudy and snowing during our tour. Flat light is not the best for taking photos of ice.
Henry looked like a real live Antarctic explorer here.
More cool (pardon the pun) ice formations. There was a little blue sky in the background for this shot.
These sheets of ice are HUGE!
The Balloon Bunch: Henry, Me, Dave, Dwayne, and Jill.
We really had to be careful in areas where the ice was thin. This was not your usual retired-folks cruise ship excursion here.
