Leonie Island by dawn's early light

(viewed 921 times)
Leonie is the triangular face to the right of the big iceberg. You can see a snow-filled gully on it, just left of centre - we climbed up there to the top last week.

Baked Antarctica

(viewed 1138 times)
Or more precisely, Baked Alaska in Antarctica. A great dessert,
consisting of sponge cake, ice-cream and meringue. The meringue topping
insulates the ice-cream so that it doesn't melt in the 250 C oven!

Agnieszka, Mark and Jamie, with facial icing

(viewed 1050 times)
At low temperatures (sub -20) your breath freezes on your clothing
around your face and freezes your beard (if you have one) to your
balaclava, which is very uncomfy. It doesn't affect me too badly - I'm
a life-long spec-wearer, so controlling my breathing so I don't fog my
specs is second nature.

Minus 30 celcius...

(viewed 813 times) was today, briefly, although it was around -25 all day. Four of us
skied to Lagoon Island, which is about 6km from Rothera.
