Antarctic Diving 13 - 2nd hole 100m from the First

Back to gallery    Back to thumbnails    Next     Previous

A diver prepares to swim under ice and lay a line so that fishing nets can be laid. The wasn't so thick here as can be seen by the blocks that have been able to be lifted out of the hole rather than pushed underneath the ice. If they are under, there's a chance the rope can get caught on them, more of an annoyance than a danger, but worth avoiding if you can.

There's something very odd about going diving like this, get kitted up, sit on the sledge behind the skidoo, drive out to the hole and turn the engine off. Instant silence, no water to be seen until you break the hole open again, no movement at all, for a moment you wonder if you've got this right and didn't just get kitted up by mistake...
