This is my first time down to the Ice when it hasn’t been high summer. That means that I get to experience actual night. That also means that wee have the opportunity for real sunrises and real sunsets. The morning shift has had some truly spectacular sunrises, while the night shift has been working through most of the sunsets. I asked my friend Pablo to wake me up in the event of a beautiful sunrise. Boy did he deliver!
We have been working near Clarence Island for the past few days. One morning- when we were in thick ice the sky just exploded. Big thanks to Pablo for waking me up so I could go on deck and experience it. My photos do not do it justice . Actually I really wished Andrew were there for the company and better photography skills.
Without further ado, I give you Antarctic sunrise near Clarence Island.
