Dog team passing iceberg

Dog team passing iceberg
From one of the gritty "home developed" Ektachrome slides taken in 1966, this one cleaned up in post processing. Out on the sea ice among the islands near Mawson, for a practice run with the dog teams - here passing an iceberg. Another (more gritty) image in the PiP.

This looks so very impressive and adventurous. The overall blueness in the ice...where does it come from?

Thank you. The blue is partly from the lighting (no AWB and daylight film) and partly, I suspect, from the 'home processing'. :)

Ah, they are a wonderful mix and look happy to be out! These days they wouldn't be allowed in Antartica.

Thanks, Gudrun. Sorry, I missed your comment earlier and you're quite right, they've now been banned there for many years.

Thanks, everyone. The dogs were very popular and probably the best form of transport over sea ice or even for short trips on the plateau. When we went on the spring trip, we were stopped to refuel at lunch on our second day when a dog team, leaving Mawson that morning, caught up with us!
