Sam's Exotic Travels Sailing the Gerlache Strait, Antarctica

This is my favorite set from Antarctica.  If you're looking for penguins, you won't find them here.  What you will find, however, are some amazing skies and a glimpse of Antarctica's natural beauty. 

Gerlache Strait or De Gerlache Strait or Détroit de la Belgica is a channel/strait separating the Palmer Archipelago from the Antarctic Peninsula. The Belgian Antarctic Expedition, under Lt. Adrien de Gerlache, explored the strait in January and February 1898, naming it for the expedition ship Belgica. The name was later changed to honor the commander himself.
