12 Of The Most Spectacular Photos Of The Antarctic

Antarctica is one of the most hostile and inaccessible places ('continent' would be a huge understatement) on our planet and is often overlooked because of its lack of human life and general basic amenities and tourism. It is, however, for the extreme adventurer, and the travelers lucky enough to venture down there, an unparalleled experience that simply cannot be trumped anywhere else on the planet. The vast expanse of white, tiered snow-caps and seemingly endless glaciers only heighten the feelings of humanity's insignificance and natures grandeur and these photos alone will make you feel a little isolated and overwhelmed. The enormity and lack of perspective of the Antarctic make it an attraction for all photography enthusiasts and that's why we have chosen 12 of the most spectacular photos of the Antarctic that we could find. enjoy:-
