The Sunset on October 5th, McMurdo Station

The summer rush at McMurdo Station in Antarctica is just getting underway. As much as I wish I were there, I know this only from emails and communiqués that come trickling in from the seventh continent, where, it sometimes feels, all of last year's friends are reassembling without me. To further fuel my overwhelming feeling of polar saudade, Michael Deany, my skiing crony and the man who valiently kept this blog alive during my long two months camped in the Antarctic wilderness, sends this photograph:
