The cold winter temperatures usually mean
crystal clear days as there is no water vapour in the air.
The scale of Antarctica in these conditions becomes quite
overpowering, almost frightening. You can be standing on a cliff
edge and be able to see a clear 100 miles in all directions knowing
that the only other human beings in that 100 mile radius circle
are your fellow winterers in the collection of huts just below you.
If the air is still then the silence too is equally
huge, with nothing moving or making a sound in the whole of that
