This week at Davis: 27 September 2013

To spend four winters at Davis since 2000 has been an incredible way to experience Antarctica. With another winter almost at an end and resupply looming on the horizon, we’re about to witness the transformation of the landscape and the frenzied return of the amazing Antarctic wildlife. I have drawn from my photo archive folder to give us a glimpse of what we can expect over our last eight weeks or so here in this magnificent place. Not only will the wild life start to return to the area so will the big orange ship Aurora Australis to take us home.

“This is the fastest moving, slow moving place I’ve ever been.”
