  1. That’s quite the heatwave they’re having down there, isn’t it! Amazing shots – thank you for sharing.

  2. Looking at this amazing film , I come away in awe of Sir Ernest Shackleton and his men living on and off ice floes for sixteen months.The last four months were on the floes with no access to their ship which collapsed and sunk. They lived through all of this, and with the leadership of Shackleton lived to tell their story. Thanks for having this web-site. Thomas J Bragen Bayonne, NJ. USA
