'Ice Bath' by Benjamin Saenz taken in McMurdo Sound, Antarctica - Highly Commended. 'Submitted in support of designation of a Marine Protected Area in the Ross Sea, Antarctica, one of the last intact marine ecosystems on the planet. A Weddell Seal rests in its breathing hole. These seals maintain their holes all winter, using their canine teeth to scrape ice from the edges.'
