Photo of the Day

Penguin Party

Your Shot photographer Daisy Gilardini was battling a bad cold the day she landed on Antarctica's Pleneau Island. "I picked up my tripod and turn to make my way back to the ship and this is what I saw," she says. ?In a blink of an eye I forgot about my cold and the uncomfortable situation... it was magic!"
