Photographer's Note

Compact pack ice covered the water surface at the north end of Lemaire channel. Pack ice results from wind and currents pushing drift ice together; its concentration is measured in terms of how much of the surface it covers; in this case no water was visible, thus the measurement of 10/10 pack ice here.
It was a very strange feeling to be traveling over what appeared to be solid surface.
