Cape Royds from the sea ice.

Black Tie Required

Cape Royds in Antarctica is a spectacular place, with brilliant blue-white ice stretching out to sea and black sand beaches warming in the sun. Penguins are everywhere, seemingly always on their way to or from work (and dressed for it). The colony is a loud place to be, a cacophony of thumping, grating, and screeching sounds that mix on the wind with the very strong smell of fish.
