Pictures

Throughout my career as a polar explorer, I've been lucky enough to be able to see beautiful landscapes, meet incredible people and live extraordinary adventures.

    The location of several populations of Emperor Penguins in the vincinity of Crown Bay had been published already through satellite imagery in 2009. But so far not yet discovered on the field. This time, two members of IPF team (Kristof Soete and Raphael Rcihard) and my self could confirmed -de visu- the rockery's existence in early December 2012. What a thrill ...
