Antarctic Images by Anthony Powell Antarctica photos videos and timelapse : Photo Keywords : cold  : Black Island station at 11.15am in the morning in July.
Camera mounted to a post set in the ice for part of 4 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.
Black Island Satellite Station. Long exposure shot during the Antarctic winter.
Milky Way Over Black Island. The green in the picture is is from faint auroras in the sky.
Bust of Admiral Bird, first person to fly to the South Pole.
Aurora over one of the dormitory buildings at McMurdo Station.
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.

Skua eating a dead penguin.
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 Weddel Seal. The seal has wandered inland and died. The cold has freeze-dried it, and the winds have stripped away some of the flesh exposing the skull.
Scott Base road sign in stormy weather.
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.
Frozen dunny at the "A-Frame" building out on the Ross Ice Shelf, where people like to get away for the weekend.
