Summer in the Land of Ice (34) More files... by Tui De Roy
It is midnight on December 21st, mid-summers day some 200 miles beyond the Antarctic circle. While folks everywhere in the northern hemisphere are huddling in cozy homes, spending long dark evenings preparing for Christmas, at the opposite end of the earth is a world now flooded with constant daylight. And just as northern wildlife has settled into its lowest gear for the winter, in these far southern reaches the tempo of life is in full swing. It is a brief season of exuberance when everything happens very fast.Text by Tui De Roy.
