Looking down on Scott Base, the area where the Ross Ice Shelf joins the sea ice can be clearly seen in the background.

Scott Base with Observation Hill behind to the left. McMurdo Station is just over the hill on the right.
Panorama looking down the hill to Scott Base and across the Ice Shelf to White Island. Black Island is in the distance on the right, Mount Terror on the left.
Scott Base, Antarctica. Mount Erebus is in the background, the pressure ridges in the ice are from the ice shelf pressing the sea ice against the shore.
Looking out the window of the historic Discovery hut to Vince's Cross at Hut Point, Antarctica.
Step into the light.
Inside Discovery Hut, the site of Scott's first expedition to Antarctica. The hut is preserved as a living museum.

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.
From It's a Harsh Continent
Nacreous or Polar Stratospheric Clouds in the sky above an ice formation in the Scott Base pressure ridges.
Pressure Ridges in front of Scott Base. These form as the sea ice in front of Scott Base is crushed by the advancing Ross Ice Shelf behind it.

Moon Rise over the Ross Ice Shelf behind the pressure ridges in front of Scott Base.
Ist Light. The first sunrise (at noon) after 4 months of no sun during the Antarctic winter
Milky Way over Black Island Satellite Station
Full Moon over Observation Hill. The cross is the memorial marker to Robert Scott and his men who died returning from the South Pole in 1914.
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.
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.
Shackelton's Hut at Cape Royds at the end of winter.
Scott Base, Antarctica in mid-summer
Scott Base as seen form out on the Ice Shelf. Observation Hill is in the background. McMurdo Station sits at the Base of Ob Hill on it's right hand side out of the picture.

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.
