Anna versus Antarctica!

Our lucky Travel Photography Scholarship lady is back from Antarctica where she spent 13 days with Nat Geo on assignment photographer and mentor Jason Edwards.

Whilst Anna works on her wildly anticipated portfolio of photos, you can read about her Antarctic adventure. Battling 40 foot sea swells, failing equipment, persistent sea sickness and exhaustion, Anna finds magical moments with fur seals napping on bergs and marvels the pure majesty of the ice like 'blue neon sculptures' and 'speckled silk'.
