BRIAN Anderson has had adventures around the world that some of us can only dream of.
Brian has travelled across Asia, Africa, South America, Europe and into the Arctic circle and Antarctic Continent.
Now he will be giving an illustrated talk on his latest voyage to the Antarctic regions – which he calls “the world’s last true wilderness” – and his encounter with all kinds of wildlife.
Brian, an award-winning photographer who has lived in Bebington since 1976, said: “I spent three weeks there, some of it aboard a Russian icebreaker when we were trapped in Ushuaia in Tierra del Fuego.
“Helicopters left us in the middle of sea ice, about four miles from the emperor penguin colony so as not to frighten the chicks. So we were trekking over an hour in knee-deep snow. You can fall through sea ice – it didn’t happen, but we had to be careful.”
He adds that the trip was a risk-filled one: “You can fall through sea ice – it didn’t happen, but we had to be careful.”
