Pictures: My Journey To The Antarctic, Part 3

On the morning of 21 March, we were woken up abruptly at 4am by our expedition leader, and called to the deck immediately. Here we witnessed an entire ice shelf that had broken off from the mainland, more than a square kilometer in size and deep enough to touch the sea bed. It felt that Antarctica was speaking to us in the only way it could. The consequences of climate change were evident.
