Talk: In the Footsteps of Shackleton, 3 February 2016

29 January 2016

Award winning wildlife photographers Pam and Eddy Lane will be giving a talk next Wednesday, 3 February 2016, titled ‘In the Footsteps of Shackleton’, combining images from their two major expeditions to the South Atlantic where they visit the Falkland Islands, South Georgia and Antarctica and show a variety of habitats, vast landscapes and exceptional wildlife. Among them, sites that polar explorer Ernest Shackleton visited during his epic expedition of 1914 to 1916.

The talk will be held in English and will take place at Akrotiri Environmental Education and Information Centre in Akrotiri, Limassol on Wednesday, 3 February 2016 at 18:00.

Exactly 100 years ago, Shackleton and his men were in a desperate fight for survival. On 28 October 1915, their ship Endurance, which had been trapped in ice for many months, had finally sunk and three lifeboats had been saved. For the following five months, they were at the mercy of the ice and the Southern Ocean, until 17 April 1916 when they finally reached dry land at the Elephant Island.

Pam Lane ARPS DPAGB EFIAP and Eddy Lane ARPS DPAGB EFIAP are both wildlife and travel photographers based in Wiltshire, UK and they love visiting some of the wildest places on earth. While they try to capture their experiences with their images, sometimes, a moment is so magical, that they simply put their cameras down and just take in the complete environment.
