    Alex, it's wonderful that we have someone here at APUG who was on the ship that rescued the passengers of the Akademik Shokalskiy, and is sharing these beautiful photos with us. Thank you, I've enjoyed them all! Some are hauntingly beautiful and stark and forbidding at the same time. Imagine being iced in for a whole dark winter like Shackleton's men... then there were some photos recently recovered from Scott's doomed expedition: http://www.nzaht.org/

    A salt-related note: We got home last night from a week vacation on Maui ( polar opposite of Antarctica! ) where I picked up some pinkish-orange Hawaiian alaea salt to try making salt prints with.

    So, all salt water would count? Hmmm

    In your example I am inferior could do this because you didn't say that the surfboard itself had to be in the water

    I do live on the ocean or near enough to it that I could go there and take pictures it just didn't occur to me that that could be part of the image thinking thinking
