The South Pole geographic and ceremonial markers. The Barbershop Pole in the background is the ceremonial South Pole marker. The small steel pole in the foreground marks the actual South Pole, which needs to be adjusted regularly.

Looking north behind McMurdo Station, an aurora hangs in the sky above the dome that houses the NASA satellite ground station on the ridge.
Two Pisten Bully vehicles traversing across the Ice Shelf from Black Island back to McMurdo in foggy conditions with an aurora overhead turning the lighting green. Temperatures were approx -55 C out on the ice shelf this day, so I only managed one or two photos before the camera froze.
Black Island station at 11.15am in the morning in July.
Antarctica Time Lapse Demo clip from 2006  Old time-lapse video filmed in Antarctica, in and around McMurdo Station and Scott Base. This was done purely as a demo to show the potential for time-lapse footage in Antarctica, and was an early precursor to my current feature film work.  Each year the sun is below the horizon for 4 months in the middle of winter, and above the horizon for 4 months in summer. During the couple of months in between we have more-or-less normal days. Includes shots of auroras and the very rare polar stratospheric nacreous clouds, which form when ozone depleting gases crystallize in the upper atmosphere in the intense cold. Summer population is about 1200 people, winter about 130.

Aurora Australis: The Southern Lights  Time-lapse footage of the Aurora Australis, or Southern Lights. This is the Southern Hemisphere equivalent of the Aurora Borealis or Northern Lights. Filmed during the Antarctic winter in the general vicinity of McMurdo Station and Scott Base, where the sun is below the horizon for 4 months of the year. Most of the individual clips here were each taken over about a 10 minute period to give you an idea of how much they were moving in real time. Have a look at my time-lapse clip "A Year on Ice" for more Antarctic footage which includes other aurora clips in the winter section.  Original footage is between 8 and 21 megapixel resolution, converted to 1080p  Other clips are available on youtube here...  www.youtube.com/Antzarctica  The soundtrack music can be purchased here...  http://www.amazon.com/Music-Darkened-Theatre-Vol-Television/dp/B000002P4P/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=music&qid=1237537635&sr=1-1
I am Penguin, hear me roar. An adelie penguin briefly uncovers it's egg while letting out a series of squarks to show off.
Splash Inspection. Adelie penguins, not sure whether or not to jump in the water or not look closely after another has just jumped in, trying to decide if it is safe to follow.
