We waited with bated breath until BBC’s Frozen Planet came out on blu-ray and we have now watched a couple of episodes, but I have had to lock it away for a wee while – it’s dangerous stuff! The credits had barely rolled for episode two and Ali and I were knee deep in Antarctic brochures that had conveniently landed on our doorstep that day 🙂
The footage is powerfully jaw dropping and immensely beautiful, it transports you to a simpler but more beautiful place…one which challenges the senses and sets your adrenaline going – how can you not be tempted?!
For us, it brings back memories of a very precious trip to Antarctica in 2006 and stirs a longing for the Arctic which is entirely the fault of an opportunistic and half price trip to Greenland in 2010. I have shared some of our favourite polar region photos in this blog today. Others are available in our Antarctic and Arctic photo galleries.
