Here’s another shot from the BBC Dynasties shoot, on which I worked as an expedition photographer and camera assistant together with @badgerboy05 and @willplawson in 2017 in Antarctica.
.
Valentine’s Day was just a few days ago, but I did not get the time to post during the week. Albeit a quite commercialized day, the idea behind it is a beautiful one - thinking about your loved ones and showing them that they are special to you. I believe we do this way to little.
.
Many of you have learned already that emperor penguins mate for the season and carefully select their partner. They will undergo a beautiful and graceful ritual in which they will mimic the movements of their partner to get into perfect synchrony with them. To me, some of the moments when two birds stand really close, with their bellies touching and them gently interacting, really look like love is in the air. It was a perception that struck me multiple time, possibly because I had to leave my wife at home for 11 months, to be with these marvelous birds.
.
As a consequence, I was constantly looking for ways to show this perceived love in a photograph and while I took many of the more obvious shots of birds snuggled up to each other, when I saw this scene, it became obvious to me in a split second what the photograph had to look like. Two birds apparently holding hands, slightly turned away from each other - just like a first shy approach between a young couple. :-)
.
I am currently working on a new presentation of my second time in Antarctica called „Penguin Love“ and I am considering this photo to be the title slide - what do you think? :-)

To all my American friends: today at 8pm central, you can finally watch our emperor penguin movie on BBC America! Make sure to tune in! We poured our heart and soul into this one!!!
.
This photo to me shows some of the many things that emperor penguins embody. They are stunningly beautiful and gentle creatures, but at the same time there is this incredible amount of dedication and determination in their look.
.
Make sure to catch a glimpse of these virtues in the emperor penguin episode tonight and leave me your feedback on how you liked it! :-)

@christmannphoto - We’re having bad weather again and a #storm of 40 knots is blowing across #atkabay #antarctica. While we can sit comfortably in our secure research station, the #emperorpenguins have to face these severe #weather conditions without any protection whatsoever. The only way they can fight the cold is by using #teamwork. All #emperor #penguins will stand together in a #huddle and take turns when it comes to who has to be outside and who may be inside the warm center. They are remarkable birds, so well adapted and caring when it comes to their #chicks. The chicks are not born yet, but when they are, their parents will make unimaginable sacrifices in order to raise them. Keep your fingers crossed, that the storm will pass soon and that we can continue to tell their story for the rest of the world to know about how incredible they really are.

The view from my kayak was pretty spectacular. Shades of blue that could only be found in Antarctica dressed ice sculptures shaped by the elements. I really wish photos could do this place justice but it’s so vast, so grand that it’s nearly impossible to accurately capture its beauty.
2nd photo: I am still a child and there’s no denying it. When we first got on the kayak I was hoping my gloves were going to be good enough to keep my hands warm and dry. What did I do at the first sign of a clear block of ice? Naturally I stuck my hand in the water within the first 5 minutes. 🤣🙈 This photo is of another block of ice, a gazillion years old, devoid of any air bubbles and likely had some penguin guano on it but how could I possibly not lick it?!? That’s a totally perfect reaction to ice right? 😬

@christmannphoto - Happy #worldpenguinday everybody! Time to celebrate the greatest birds on #earth, but also the most threatened, due to #climatechange and their changing habitat.
I can’t wait for the #emperorpenguins of #atkabay to finally have #chicks again - it’s such a lovely time with all these little curious guys running around in the #colony. It’s our duty to preserve this marvelous spectacle for following generations, so let’s all do our part in consuming less of the Earth’s resources. Every little step helps us and helps these wonderful creatures :). #worldpenguinday2017 #antarctica #wildlifefilmmaking #dynasty #earthonlocation #bbcearth #awesomeearth #onassignment #polar #climatechange #emperors #penguins #christmannphoto #natureinfocus #nature #naturephotography #remote #movie #film #neverstopexploring #fantastic_earth #earthfocus #photographersforantarctica

Oh the thrill of a new adventure!! Kayaking in the Antarctic Peninsula is one adventure for the books. One of our kayak groups had penguins surrounding them, another had humpback whales diving just a few feet away, nevermind cruising by ice that could potentially be millions of years old. It really was an experience of a lifetime. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Here’s another shot from the BBC Dynasties shoot, on which I worked as an expedition photographer and camera assistant together with @badgerboy05 and @willplawson in 2017 in Antarctica.
.
A lot of people have asked me how penguins sleep and while I cannot give you solid proof that they really were in such a state, I strongly believe I have witnessed the birds asleep multiple times. .
Usually they would be standing upright or lying on their belly extremely still. When they were standing up, I could distinguish between a short nap, when they would just close their eyes but hold their head up high and deep sleep, when they would lean their head to one side and put their beak underneath their wing (just like in the above photo).
Lying on their belly, their head would usually be flat on the ground with their beak partially stuck in the snow. .
No matter what phase or pose of sleep they were in, it oftentimes coincided with calm and benign weather. The most tranquil situations were on warm days around -10°C with no wind and light snowfall. More than once I could even hear the birds breathing deeply and sometimes it would even sound like they were slightly snoring. Either way, it was always a privilege to experience these calm situations in which at least I can say for sure, the birds were extremely relaxed :-).

Take a look beneath the Antarctic waters as we approach an iceberg. I can’t help but feel a sense of calm as I look at this video — that is until I step out of my bubble and think about the fact that the ice here is melting at an increasingly rapid rate every decade, immediately that calmness turns to sadness. But I am hopeful. Hopeful that as there is more and more awareness among the masses, more of us will begin to step out of our own bubbles and make the changes necessary to lessen our impact, to live a more sustainable life in tune with Mother Nature.

The incredibly cool Port Lockroy in Antarctica! This place was established as a British Military base during WWII and continued to operate as a British research station until 1962.⠀
:⠀
In 1996, it was renovated into a museum and post office that is operated by the United Kingdom Antarctic Heritage Trust.⠀
:⠀
It is possible to call on Port Lockroy by ship while on expedition in Antarctica when the conditions allow. The museum offers a small souvenir shop that funds the maintenance of the site and other historic sites/monuments in Antarctica.⠀
:⠀
A staff of 4 people man the station for 5 months during the summer, conducting penguin research, operating the museum/gift shop and processing the mail that is sent by tourists from the tiny post office. ⠀
:⠀
Did you imagine such a place existed on the 7th continent?⠀

Here’s another shot from the BBC Dynasties shoot, on which I worked as an expedition photographer and camera assistant together with @badgerboy05 and @willplawson in 2017 in Antarctica.
.
Have you ever wondered where the emperor penguin got its name from? I certainly have and without knowing the true reason, my guess always was because he is the tallest and most majestic penguin of them all. With his elegant black jacket and pastel white shirt alongside a colorful necktie, the emperor penguin is stunningly beautiful and I don’t know anybody who thinks otherwise.
.
Then, when going through my archive today, I came across this photograph and it dawned on me. His determined and serious facial expression, tall shoulders and the black coat reminded me instantaneously of the emperor from Star Wars. Obviously that must be where this penguin is getting his name from ;-). And even though this is just a fun post and a humorous explanation attempt, I truly hope that the force will be with these wonderful birds from Antarctica. There habitat is in severe jeopardy and they can use all the help they can get. Aside from this, they are not evil creatures at all, but the most caring birds I have ever seen - I guess the name mystery will remain unsolved.

This image was taken exactly five years ago on a beautiful morning that my fellow winterers and I spent on the sea-ice. We were all having a great time at the penguin colony and witnessed many chick huddles, so called creches, in which the young emperor penguins organize. The huddle itself is the penguins secret weapon against the cold and it is a technique which is crucial to their survival in a hostile place like Antarctica. Consequently, the young chicks need to learn early on how a huddle is formed and operated. While their parents are very well organized and calm when huddling, the chicks are not quite as experienced. It cracks me up when some of them believe the way to the warm center of the huddle is not by patiently waiting until it is their turn, but by running towards the huddle and then leaping right into the middle. I have seen so many of these fluffballs crowd-surfing on their peers already and trust me, it’s the cutest thing you could ever see. They are quite forgiving so there are no hard feelings after somebody has obtained a spot in the middle with the aforementioned technique, but eventually they will all learn how to make it fair to everybody. I am not sure I will be able to improve on this photo in 2017, but I will certainly keep on trying. In the meantime, I hope this image makes you smile as much as it makes me smile every time I look at it :-).

As part of a global plan to add resilience to our oceans, we must ensure that both polar regions have as many protections as a concerned international community can afford to give them. In this new carbon era, concerns over fishing rights - especially of non-essential fish foods - must be delegated to the back burner to ensure we create a climate future that allows humanity, and species like this humpback, to survive. With the help of @SeaLegacy, I will continue pushing for these protections.
