Antarctica – Standing on the Bottom of the World

WhyAntarcticaLandscapeModeIf angels had blubber instead of flutter; if they sang Holy Cow instead of Hosanna, Antarctica would be paradise.

Beautiful beyond description because there is nothing else like it, endlessly fascinating–an everlasting exhibit of iceberg sculptures as discrete as snowflakes, penguins porpoising like synchronized swimmers, the blowing of whales, the tympani of ice cracking and glaciers calving. It is seen only by the blessed and those who know it best fear the loss of it most.
