Senior meteorology observer, Barry Becker, took this photo during an airdrop of supplies to Davis research station in September. Barry pre-set the focus of his Nikon D750 on the distant station. When the aircraft arrived it took less than a minute between the packages exiting the aircraft and the chutes settling on the ice. Barry has previously wintered on Macquarie Island and spent two summers on the continent as the senior meteorologist.
