King Penguins cope with a sudden snowstorm by huddling together. I got this image by positioning myself along the shoreline where these birds were gathered, considering whether to enter the sea. My goal in this image was to maximize the drama of the snow fall on the birds by slowing my shutter speed sufficiently to create streaks. I was kneeling in the snow and was quietly in that position for a long time which allowed the penguins to relax in my presence.
