Busy day of Arctic obstacles; a newly frozen bit of sea one of them. Nothing to worry about, apart from sea monsters!
Eric Phillips looking for a safe way down off a large block of ice, it looks solid enough… But is it???
Another day spent ‘living in a glass of milk’. No shortage of ‘interest’. Perhaps more than was fun to deal with.
Had a bad day today but I do love a grey sky, and quirky bendy ice on a frozen lead.
During our resupply & relocation flight, I couldn’t wait to get back on the frozen surface again! Lucky me indeed.

Eric Philips takes ‘Spring cleaning’ to the extreme ahead of re-supply day!
Nothing much going on today so I had time to photograph Eric hauling his load through a nice chunk of ice specially for the camera.
First thing Friday morning Eric slices our makeshift sled raft through some salt ‘flowers’ growing on newly firmed ice on his way to work, beautiful
Not everything on the Arctic Ocean is epic, grand & legendary. These feathery salt crystals are fragile & beautiful!
