Taking photos on the zodiacs is not a laughing matter. It takes lots of luck & "skills". If you've been on a zodiac in Antarctica, you know it moves & your view path is blocked by all your other fellow passengers on the same "boat".

So, it's not easy. From my photos, you may think it's easy. Trust me, it's not!
Water splashing...
Making sure one doesn't fall into the freezing sea... (I've phobias of being drowned :-()
& taking shots in the freezing weather...
U begin to see the picture?

Rule no. 1: Do not put yourself or others at risk of having the boat overturned just becoz of a photo; no matter how good it looks!
Rule no. 2: Protect yourself against the cold. It can be very cold after an hour or so out there with the icebergs.
Rule no. 3: Always listen to the zodiac drivers instruction. They know what's good for you :-)
