Postcards from readers: González Videla Antarctic Base

The photographer: Rich Howard of Carmichael

Behind the lens: González Videla Antarctic Base is a Chilean station on the Antarctic Peninsula where tourists are allowed to visit. The gentoo penguins are standing around like they don't know where to go despite the signpost. I also like that everything on the sign post is north – New York and Santiago – and that I don't even know where some of these places are. The smell and the noise are missing, but the mountain in the background gives a hint of the wild Antarctica that is never far away.
