This time of year we have some incredible sunsets. A number of people took photos of this particular phenomoenon last night. It's almost as if nature is telling us that the sun (and the escape route away from the long Antarctic night ahead) is just ahead and if we follow this path, sunlight, green grass and freshies lie ahead. In reality, the sunbeam is pointing toward East Antarctica, on the other side of the Royal Society Range. There it's even colder and more desolate than Ross Island. Ah...nature, the temptress.
