Antarctica


February 2010

For our tenth wedding anniversary we realized one of our dreams and travelled to the end of the world. If possible, we would probably never return. There is nothing but lownliness and peaceful silence with the harmony of six colours: light blue, dark blue, turquoise, white, grey and black. No buildings, no beton, no people, only wales, birds, see lions and penguins. Beside antarctican wind nature showed all its possibilities: fog, snowy rain, sunrise and sunset with clear sunny sky.
