Borgen Bay, Antarctica

Dec 31, 2018 - National Geographic Orion


It would be hard to try to name my favorite place in Antarctica, but for scenery on a sunny day, there would be few places to match the splendor of Borgen Bay, with Mt Fance as the backdrop to the mirror-like waters of this beautiful place. We were so fortunate to come upon the bay on just one of those days. The mountains reflecting in the calm flat water. It was almost a sin to disturb the peacefulness with the wake of the Zodiacs as we motored around.

About the Author

Steve Morello

Naturalist/Certified Photo Instructor

Steve Morello has had a long and colorful career in the natural history world. Born in New Jersey he was lucky to be able to summer on the shores of Cape Cod. Whether it was exploring the tidal pools, snorkeling along the beach, or hiking in the dunes, it all came together to instill in him a deep connection to the natural world. It was no surprise that he would return to the Cape as a whale researcher in his adult years. It was on the Cape that Steve first became involved in guiding, and for 15 years acted as naturalist on whale watching boats in the Gulf of Maine. Steve worked with groups creating environmental education material for school programs and soon found another one of his passions, photography.
