Cape Petrel
Photographer: Bill Klipp
Location: Southern Ocean, Antarctica
As we cruised the Southern Ocean off Antarctica the winds disappeared and the water became dead calm almost looking oily. I positioned my self near the bow to photograph sea birds as the followed the ship. After well over an hour and many photos later I captured this Cape Petrel gliding between the waves.
