南喬治亞/福克蘭生態之旅歸來(Back from the “South Georgia and the Falklands” Tour)

2019年10月初出發,歷經一個月再度完成一次南極地區的探險,誠如領隊Joe Van Os先生在行程開場白時強調,這次的南喬治亞攝影的旅程是一場探險,舉凡天候變化、海上航行、橡皮艇登岸、船上的生活及各方面細節等等,都是無法預料的探險行為絕對不可調以輕心,行程結束後回顧他的顧慮頗有同感,因為南喬治亞是英屬的南極群島,他們很努力的維護它原始的風貌,整個環境呈現天然無人跡,一般人來到這裡面對的是一個未知的世界,每分每秒每一腳步都是挑戰,南喬治亞當局希望來訪的人不要將不屬於這裡的任何物品帶來改變或污染這原始的環境,語重心長用心良苦的精神令人敬佩,環視全球還有多少像南喬治亞這樣原始自然的風貌呢。
