Building Services Supervisor, Peter Layt, took the cover photo of ice crystals growing on a window at Mawson station just after mid-winter. The back-lighting by the low-level sun gave the crystals a gold colour. During winter the crystals formed in an endless array of different shapes and patterns, which looked absolutely stunning when the detail was revealed under magnification. Peter used a Nikon D800 camera set at f/7.1, 1/320s, ISO 400, with a Micro (macro) 200 mm f/4 D lens.
