    Wow, what gorgeous photos. I was curious about this line : "...or the colors that the penguins drag along with their feet." OK, this I need to know more about! A quick Google search brought me to an in-depth interview with photographer Gaston Lacombe talking about his trek to Antarctica.

    The answer? "...The browns are sediments dirt released by annual thaw and carried across the surface of the ice by wind, melt-water, or creatures’ feet. Around the main penguin colony areas, the browns give way to pink. That’s down to diet and the call of nature. “Penguins eat a lot of krill,” says Lacombe. “Krill goes in pink when eaten, and comes out of the other side pink too.”"

    Nifty! The more you know.
