From a newly copied but very ancient negative (1966). Myself among the Central Masson Ranges, after a climbing day a short distance inland from Mawson Station in Antarctica. The surface is blue ice and I'm leaning on VW "Antarctica 3" - the third in a series and the first 'usable' motor cars on the continent (one of the early explorers had a car which proved near unusable). See my new article "Preserving history". Here's a musical link.

Do I see some ice on your moustache, George? ;)
Vangelis was a great musician, doubtlessly.

Really cool! That must have been a fun excursion:-) I like the leopard seal on the car;-)

tiabunna has replied to Gudrun
Thanks, Gudrun. It was a great day, though I picked up frostbitten toes. The sign on the car was the emblem for the Australian National Antarctic Research Expeditions and the leopard seal part was usually known (rather unkindly) as the "leaping lizard". :-)

I've always thought leopard seals look somewhat reptilian;-)

Historic indeed! And a great opportunity to get to an area most folks will never see. What was the expedition for?

tiabunna has replied to slgwv
This day outing was essentially recreational/training, Steve. My job at Mawson was as a weather observer, other sciences there were auroral physics, cosmic radiation physics, seismology, glaciology. Later in the year I was part of a four month inland surveying trip (ref. my latest article).

Interesting shot, George. Be quite an advertising coup for VW. Envy you the time in Antarctica.

Yes, VW Australia provided the cars on that basis, Ron. "Antarctica 1" featured very extensively in their advertising here.
