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. Despite the wrappings, snow was still driven inside the camera and packed solid in the compact flash and battery compartments.
Star trails, looking straight up over about 2 hours the movement of the stars create an overhead circular pattern. The green bits in the sky are from some auroras that passed though the shot.
The full moon about to pass behind Mount Discovery as seen from Black Island in April. This photo was taken a few days before the sun disappeared below the horizon for the winter. The sunlight only just hitting the top half of Mount Discovery.
