Spring is here - the flowers are up and there's not too many flies.

PS - did you get any sound recordings of the ice breaker?
 
So many incredible visions in Antartica. This is the ice breaker making its way to McMurdo Station on Ross Island! Once a year an ice breaker makes a path through the ice for the supply ships heading here. They arrive with cargo and leave with all the waste (including human wastie waste! so brilliant) Trey Ratcliff and I were choppered out to Cape Royds and saw this sight! Perfect timing and great surprise. Adelie penguins nest here next to Shackleton's Hut. The sound the ice breaker makes is unbelievable. Like jet engines screaming as it rides up on top of the sea ice then CRASH it breaks through. The whole time the hull of the ice breaker rubbing along the sides against the ice. In this photo you see - a frozen lake and snow. Rock with Adelie Penguins nesting, babies in there too! Completely frozen sea ice (frozen does infer ice, which word to drop?) and... the sky. A storm has rolled in right now as I type and it is colder than minus 10! The snow is tearing out of the sky vertically to the ground and hitting Scott Base. Trey and I are about to head out for a walk and check out Sir Edmund Hillary's original hut he built for polar exploration and great adventure. He is a hero of mine, so very excited! #Peace   #AntarcticaNZ   #Antarctica   #Thankful   #Travel   #adventure   #adventuretravel   #penguins   #newzealand

Here's another New Year's afternoon down at Patea river mouth.  I kinda like the rough cut.

Thanxx for such a well written description.  It was a pleasure to read and provided a great context for your fine photograph.  Appreciate that you have not overcooked the image and distorted the Antarctic light.
