Camera mounted to a post set in the ice for part of 5 month long time-lapse project. Recording changes in the sea ice pressure ridges in front of Scott Base in temperatures down to about -60C ambient. Despite the wrappings, snow was still driven inside the camera and packed solid in the compact flash and battery compartments.
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.
Self-laying track vehicle. 6 hours drive away from McMurdo, 40 below, a storm headed our way in a few hours, and one of the tracks on the vehicle breaks. Events like this are why we always have lots of back-up options available when we travel deep field.
Dead Adelie Penguin Chick. Only about 20% of the chicks survive, most fall prey to predators such a skuas and leopard seals. The penguin rookeries are littered with the corpses of frozen dead chicks from over the years.
Inscription on the wall "Losses to date" from 1916 under one of the bunks at the Cape Evans historic hut. These were Shackelton's "Forgotten Men" who were waiting for him to cross Antarctica, not knowing his ship had been crushed in the ice on the other side of the continent, hence the last name being an abbreviated Shackelton with a question mark after it.
