Early one morning (3am-ish) I went for a wander around the coastline and spotted a couple of Orca killer whales swimming into the bay. After a quick sprint along the coast I managed to locate myself at the closest point they'd swim past the shoreline. The one in the image cruised past a nearby photogenic iceberg - there's a slight crop factor on this but I was glad to have got up early that morning! Location: Rothera Point, Adelaide Island, Antarctica Peninsula.
