Flight to Marbel point from above...






These photos were taken from a helicopter flying into one of the camps before they closed. It's a look into the dry vallies, as well as some emperor penguins at the ice edge hanging out with a leopard seal.
I'm going to take this time to answer a few questions from blog comments from during the week. I'm not going to go in any particular order but i'll do my best to answer most of them.
The auroras we see down here in this part of the world are Australis. They are not something we see every night. Usually we see them on clear nights when the wind is calm and you can look out and see nothing but stars and what looks like a lime green mist floating across the sky.
I've never read the book "Northern Lights".
Jobs down here in antarctica are available to just about everyone, Yes the town is set up like a military base as far as the housing quarters, which means you live with a roommate unless you have a partner. As far as coming down on a tour and visiting, i'm not sure what that entails or what the cost is, but as far as i'm concerned, I would much rather go somewhere and work and get to know the area and people than to pay to visit and then just leave. To me, getting to know people where you travel is the biggest part of the adventure.

"Getting to know people where you travel is the biggest part of the adventure."

You're right about that, Jason.

I have a question about the photo at the bottom of the page, "Iridium Flare". Did you take it? It's a fabulous image. The satellite appearing like it's rising up from the landscape. Seriously, it's one of the best photos I've ever seen.

Jacob Mathai said...

That looks amazing . Cheers!

Amanda Wildefyre said...

I thought I wanted a penguin after that damn disney movie...after seeing your pics i REALLY want one know!

Those pictures are amazing.

Hi,
Saw you on blogs of note. Great pictures, esp. for us who are stuck in cities with only bits of sky to look up at.
I'm from India, so even the snow looks great to me.
And the penguins, of course, are too HAPPY FEET-like.
Keep posting and hope that the next generation can still enjoy Antartica

Casey said...

This is truly interesting. Not too long ago there was segment on Antartica (on 60 Minutes) and how it perserves many seeds of crops around the world in this underground cave-sort incase our universe is to one day go something unexpeted. Therefore leaving traces back and help for re-establishment.

Hosh said...

it's stunning!
someday, i hope to take a picture like that.

Brett said...

Mmm, sure looks nice and toasty thanks to all that global warming. Yep, it's very clear the whole place will be underwater before my son, now 4, reaches adulthood. So sad.

Laura Stokes-Gray said...

Love your blog. Gorgeous photos. Enjoy hearing about life at McMurdo. I considered working there but cannot manage it at this time. I'm VERY interested in the work you're doing in the science lab. Keep posting!

Antarctica has to be one of the most fascinating places--besides having been the "last outpost for exploration", it truly is a landscape about which most of us can only dream. Fabulous that you have the opportunity to see it firsthand, for all the inhospitable weather.

Mary said...

Thanks for the images they were simply superb of Antartica.
Well Done!

Giorgio said...

Great Place!!!...I got ushuaia last year...I hope tpo get Antartica next time!
Greetings from Italy/Argentina

What is blogs of note?

Naomi Scott said...

Wow, you've got a really cool blog.. I enjoyed surfing through your blog! ^^

AmosGraber said...

I'm an Historian, and I have always wanted to do work there, I envy you all and wish everyone there the best of luck. What kinds of experimentation are being done to find out what is under all the ice, especially in the valleys between the mountains, like Larsens Range and others?

Kind Regards,

Amos Graber

fake_snake said...

Wow!! Those are some great photos of Antarctica.

I just started on this blog so this question might be silly but here it is. Do you live in Antarctica? And if you do, what do you do there (i.e. a job, research, etc.). I would love to hear from you.

Post more pictures please. And more of those great penguins.

shawn said...

I love reading your blog.. and love the pics of the penguins.. I think they are great.. Keep safe

Karen said...

What great pictures. And a great way for us to live vicariously through you, for chances are slim we will ever be in Antarctica :)

Kristin said...

I just happened upon your blog from the Blogger list. I am truly enjoying my visit and will be here often to read your posts and view these magnificent pictures, what is left to come with daylight dwindling. I truly agree about getting to know the people by working and living with them for a while. It has been a dream of mine to visit Antartica or the Arctic Circle. Thank you so much for sharing.
