The last month has seen our numbers rise from twenty one to around seventy at Rothera. The first aircraft were foreign planes heading to other Antarctic bases but these were soon followed by BAS’s “Dash 7” and “Twin Otters” loaded with staff for Rothera and Halley. For the wintering team this means a lot of changes with base becoming a lot more vibrant with constantly coming planes and people as well as longer lunch queues. I haven’t taken too many photos this month but have slowly got around to looking at some that had slipped through the net as well as processing a bit more of the timelapse I have shot over the winter. Perhaps the random selection of photos for this month best reflects how work has felt over the last couple of weeks. With it now not getting dark till 11pm it already seems like a long time since we had only a couple of hours of daylight.
Also finally got around to putting some timelapse together. A collection of stuff from around Adelaide Island post midwinter. (Worth watching till the end for a laugh)
