Antarctic Mountains

Heading back at the end of a day out on the ice, just a quick stop to take a few photographs of the sun as it went down.

I recall a similar day when I was jockeying a sledge (see previous slide) and we were heading over sea-ice that was apparently firm in front of the skidoo, but was breaking up behind it - unknown to the driver who was pressing on blissful ignorance. I was on the sledge at the end of a 20 foot rope bouncing around on broken sea-ice thankful that we were travelling so fast and hoping beyond hope that the driver didn't want to stop for a chat. Luckily for us, he didn't get the urge until we were safely onto some much firmer ice.
