photo taken on the western edge of the King George VI Sound, an area of
permanent ice shelf separating Alexander Island from the Antarctic Penisnula.
This scene is very typical at this time of year - steep sided hills shrouded
by low cloud, with lovely blue meltwater pools pock-marking the ice. Some
of these pools looked pretty deep, and they provide a source of moisture
to help the low cloud you can see develop and become a pain in the arse
for Antarctic weathermen!
