Thursday Challenge—"water"

My daughter Lila took this shot as the good ship Fram
crossed the Drake Passage, between the very bottom of
South America and the tippy-top of Antarctica.  Its width
 (500 miles/800 kilometers) allows for the flow of
the Antarctic Circumpolar Current.  Storms here can be
a little hairy, but the one my girls experienced 

was not quite as bad as some, I believe.

  1. Extraordinary photo and a brave daughter you have. Started to watch the video and got scared, no kidding. Not the place for me.

  2. Her photo captured the intensity of the waves. Glad she was safe.

  3. What an amazing journey it must have been!


Thanks, merci, grazie, danke, hvala, gracias, spasibo, shukran, dhanyavaad, salamat, arigato, and muito obrigado for your much-appreciated comments.
