Christmas – Christmas
holidays in the Snow
the clocks changing and Christmas shopping looming, November is
when we all start to think about the coming winter with dark days
and little chance for outdoor activity. For some however, the
autumn leaves and warm scarves bring the excitement of the impending
snow season. This buzz of anticipation, however, need not be limited
to skiers alone. >>>

are pleased to announce that this month’s winner of our
photo competition is Mr Andrew Griffin. Andrew
took the shot on the left on our Antarctica,
Falklands & South Georgia trip in February 2004.
Why is it a winner?
Fur seals are not difficult subjects to photograph,
nor indeed are King penguins. There is a cast list of about 200,000
to choose from, so to get a winning shot from these two species
is demanding. Andrew has succeeded in capturing the exact moment
of chase. The penguin is not really in any sort of danger - this
is a young seal having a turf strut. However, he has the aggressor
pin sharp and the composition is unusual. Normally it would be
nice to have the subjects in the bottom left hand corner but this
works much better as it shows how far the penguin has been chased.
Critically, the penguin's feet are in a marvellous position, emphasising
the Keystone Cops like chase. But most of all there is terrific
humour here. This is a photo that
makes you dwell on it more than once.
Congratulations Andrew, Paul Goldstein’s
photography book is on its way to you.
