New on 500px : They were a ghastly crew…Antarctica by ColinMonteath by ColinMonteath

The crew from the private motor yacht Itasca was so awful that I cast them adrift…just to cool them down….very lucky that finally, reluctantly, and with pleading from the captain, I decided to rescue them in my Zodiac.

New on 500px : Winter ice, summer weather in Lake Superior by Yinan by Yinan

Remember how cruel the winter was? For the first time in five years, Lake Superior is even frozen enough for visitors to access the stunning ice caves at Apostle Island.
