Farewell to an old lady…

A little bit of a personal shoot the other day. I’m rather obsessed with wanting to visit Antarctica. And living in Hobart means I’m lucky enough to watch icebreakers dropping in regularly during the summer season. Specifically the Australian icebreaker ,Aurora Australis, and the French icebreaker, L’Astrolabe are based here for the season each year.

Sadly the L’Astrolabe, as pictured, is being retired. She finished her last trip to Antarctica a few weeks ago, and left Hobart for the last time the other day. Her replacement, also called the L’Astrolabe, will be visiting Hobart next season.

But I want to share four shots I took as I watched this little old lady leave Hobart for the last time.
