Frozen Kiwi's

Emily venturing onto the ice with Blake ahead testing our path.

The back of Scott Base from the ridges.

Blake and Helen.

Last Thursday Blake took us out onto the ice in front of the base to view the pressure ridges up close. It was great to get outside as although it was not windy it was -40. Very cold but beautiful. It was just before sunset at about 2.30pm. My camera did not cope with the extreme cold and froze sold but because this happens to us all at some point we share our images. I hope to get some better ones from Emily.
