Antarctic Avalanche

We were exploring the rugged coast of the Antarctic Peninsula. It was overcast and dreary. As the end of the day drew near, a gap in the clouds bathed this distant mountain face in soft warm light. It was a beautiful sight to behold and I felt lucky to be witnessing it. I used a long 200mm lens to frame the scene. Then, as I looked through my lens, something seemed to shift. I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me. I fired off a couple of shots before peering through my lens once more. As the cloud of snow from the avalanche blossomed, I suddenly realise what I was looking at and what I had captured moments before.
