Any time any place any where - 1984
Base H - Signy Island Antarctica

  ©Copyright M. Sanders - picture taken 1983 / 1984

The inspiration for this is a series of Martini TV ads from the late 70's and early 80's when someone would sit down after doing something extreme and heroic to be handed a Martini on a tray by a waiter. I think setting up for this shot in this position has to be pretty heroic in itself. Paul Tearle (left) and Barry (Baz) Green (right) on the ice but I don't know who in the wet suit.

The ice itself is a cap of sea-ice left behind on an exposed rock when the pack-ice and fast-ice around it has been blown out. I assume that the surrounding ice blew out at low tide and this was only present for a short time before the tide came back and it was blown away itself, so in many ways, a very difficult picture to get.

This picture is one of a collection assembled in 2007 on the 60th anniversary of Signy Island Base: 60°43'S 045°36'W. Thank you to those who sent their treasured memories of their time in Antarctica and allowed them to be made into a commemorative cd and then placed here on the web.

The reunion weekend was 14-16 September 2007.
