That's a pretty cold summer! Not your average kind, that's for sure :) Lovely photo! You show us the area very nicely, with Mt. Erebus in the BG and the campers with their tents in the FG. I like the cubes of snow that are stacked together to make walls. Good depth and composition. I hope you stayed warm and didn't get frostbite in such freezing temperatures.
Thankyou for sharing this interesting place with us.

Nice to see such an amazing place on TE! A good composition with a great light. I'm sure I will never go there (too cold for me!), so thank you for sharing it.

I am wondering what you were doing on the bottom of the globe. Was it work related or adventure? Very few people go here and even less go inland. I work with some scientists and technicians who were stationed in the South Pole for research and they are in a very exclusive club. This is a fascinating photo with excellent composition. The mountain in the distance show how high in elevation Antarctica is. This is truly an outstanding expeditionary photograph! Excellent work!
