About the cover

Instrument Electrician Zach Lockhard took this photo of pancake ice in Newcomb Bay, at Casey, after a blizzard last year. Standing at the wharf he used a DJI Mavic Pro drone to hover about 60 metres above the water, braving the cold for 15 minutes to capture the ice forming. A few hours later the bay was covered in sheet ice.
