Mag­nif­i­cent Antarc­tica

Mac Format - - PHOTO STREAM - by John BArtlett

So easy to shoot and so con­ve­nient, this was taken on the spur of the mo­ment from the stern of the MS Zaan­dam in Antarc­tica in Fe­bru­ary 2016, with no tweak­ing or edit­ing. I nor­mally shoot video with a semi-pro cam­corder, but I de­cided to try a pano shot on my new iPhone 6s. I’m de­lighted with the re­sult. For me, it cap­tures the mag­nif­i­cence of a lo­ca­tion that few of us have the priv­i­lege to visit. The colours are sharp and in fo­cus, and other pas­sen­gers with very ex­pen­sive cam­eras couldn’t be­lieve the shot was from an iPhone! I feel a bit of a fraud – I rarely take photos as I pre­fer video. The photo of me was also taken in Antarc­tica, with the ice­berg be­hind me!
