In 2021, I had a chance to visit the frozen continent of Antarctica. It was a chance to experience “totality,” a kind of solar eclipse where the Moon fully obscures the disk of the Sun. Originally the plan was to see this eclipse over a large Emperor Penguin colony, but the weather changed my plans. Instead, I experienced totality on the vast nothingness of the Union Glacier.
But before that, I got to spend a lot of time with the Emperor penguins and get up close and personal with these beautiful creatures. I captured some of these moments on my iPhone, which was my primary tool for making short videos on this trip, which took me to different locations in Antarctica. My videographer friend Felix helped cobble them together and created a short 2+ minute film for your enjoyment.
Let me know what you think!

Burrr… So much open space and a sense of adventure. It appears Southwest doesn’t fly there. 🤪 Love the blues/greens in the skies.
Haha, if SW flew, we won’t have that sense of peace there. I appreciate that you like our color toning.
WOW! That was amazing. There is a constant sound in the background, I am assuming it’s the wind.
Yes it is 🙂 I did ASMR 🙂
I love the wide open spaces. Thank you for sharing this. Will hold it against me if I suggest checking the spelling of Antarctica in the title? I am a huge fan of your blog.
Thank you. And yes, thanks for pointing out the spelling mistake. I am about to replace the file 🙂 Appreciate your editing 🙂
Wonderful. You are a lucky man.
I count my blessings and thank the divine force for this amazing gift of life.
