Gentoo Penguins Struggle into the Wind.

Image Credit: Photograph by John Birch.
Despite the temptation to seek shelter myself, I took this photo of a small group of gentoo (penguins) on Saunders Island in the Falklands as they struggled against the wind and driving sand to return to their rookery.
Comment by Paul Goldstein, Judge:
A clear winner.
Initially I thought this was a study in slow shutter speed, but then saw that these gentoos are almost floating across this Falklands beach in a sandstorm.
I’ve been to this beach and never got close to this sort of masterpiece.
