Herbert Ponting, Terra Nova, 1911-1912


OR stand in the middle of an Antarctic storm at the International Antarctic Centre in Christchurch, New Zealand. The "chill room" is -25 degrees and windy. July 2005.

OR don a helmet and listen to freezing pellets of ice bounce off the snow (and your head) in the front yard (the poor remnants of the snow cakes are in the foreground). Imagine a man walking by here wearing shorts just a few hours before.
