Back from Antarctica and pictures are posted. Off to Iceland tomorrow…

March 3rd, 2013 |  by No comments

Wow what an amazing February and here comes March… We got back from Antarctica last Saturday and started a workshop limited to 10 folks in Palm Beach Gardens. Tomorrow I leave for two Digital Photo Destination workshops in Iceland with good friend JP where we will be photographing Ice Caves and the Aurora. Our local dear friend and Icelandic photographic expert Ragnar just had some of his images featured in Time Magazine. Our workshop folks are truly being offered the best possible experience in Iceland.

My images from our Antarctica trip are posted. It was really an amazing trip and I concentrated on reflections and ice under water which i really find fascinating. I love Antarctica and JP and I have another trip scheduled , our 6th trip on February 16-25th 2014. This trip will include bypassing the infamous Drake Passage by flying to and from the continent. This trip is selling out fast with only 9 spots now left.20130213_danko_island_0289

Day Two of Digital Photo Destinations 2012 Antarctica Trip

February 10th, 2013 |  by No comments

I have a really good feeling that this Antarctica trip is going to be awesome. We had all 17 folks make it to Ushuaia but getting there was a bit rough as it always is in South America. Just as I was leaving for the airport I received a call from a passenger who was not allowed to board because she was lacking a receipt for an Argentinian visa even though the visa was in the Passport. Knowing that I too had the visa but with no receipt I suddenly had a vision that no one would be allowed to leave the US. I proceeded to the airport and then found out that JP somehow left home without his cameras and both of my kids were suddenly getting sick with very high fevers which required an emergency room visit. By the time I was at the airport both of my kids had vomited in bed on Jamie my beloved so the stress level was a bit high to say the least. To make matters worse two of our folks were told that there flight from Buenos Aires to Ushuaia was cancelled.

Somehow everything began to calm down once JP and I arrived in Ushuaia. We had a beautiful sunrise and went to all outdoor stores and then onto our favorite wine store where we were invited to a private tasting later that night which was simply awesome. On Friday morning we went to the wine store and purchased wine to share with everyone in our group and supplied them each with their own crystal wine glass for tastings to be held with dinner each night.

We headed to the boat and photographed some wonderful color at the dock area before boarding. We held our first group get together, did the mandatory life boat drill and dinner and then headed down the Beagle Channel towards the Drake Passage. It is now Sunday and we have been on the Drake for 12 plus hours and it is our mildest crossing so far. On a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being a ferocious Drake we are at about a 3 and there are no complaints about that.
