We crossed Drake's Passage at the beginning of the trip in gale force winds. We returned to Tierra del Fuego, crossing Drake's Passage, in calm seas. As a result, we were able to stop on an Albatros-nesting island, with permission from the Chilean authorities. It was an amazing sight to see these huge soaring birds caring for their young.

This is the first time I have ever seen an Albatros and I really like the touching moment between the Mother and little one. Beautiful shot.
