Antarctic Images by Anthony Powell Antarctica photos videos and timelapse : Photo Keywords : antarctica  : Annual supply ship offload at McMurdo Station Antarctica, 2012. Due to an unusually warm winter, the floating ice pier that is normally used to offload cargo melted badly this summer, making it unusable. A temporary floating pier had to be installed. Filmed with 4 canon SLRs, and a GoPro HD. Over 150,000 photos were condensed down to make this video.

Dorm Buildings at McMurdo Station. The odd lighting is because of the fog reflecting all the local town lights back down. There are about 75 rooms in each of these buildings.

The Scott Base Road Sign, originally built from spare parts in 1999 by carpenter Grant Shadbolt with tongue in cheek, has since become somewhat of a local landmark.
Scott Tent. This is still the same basic design tent that was used by Scott and his men 100 years ago in Antarctica. Very reliable and practical for the local conditions.
