Antarctica 2017-18: Blizzard at Hut Point.

This season, the weather is a little difficult... We had a 3 days snow storm, bringing us 20cm of snow. Unusual for the driest place on Earth.
Impossible to do much outside, especially flying to Siple Dome... But great for some photography!

The Discovery Hut was built during Robert Falcon Scott's Discovery Expedition (1901-1904). It was the first official British Antarctic Expedition since the James Clark Ross expedition 60 years earlier.
