Day 2 of the winter trip.

We went to a very rarely if ever visited part of the Brunt Ice Shelf, which is to the South West of the Halley VI Station, where Precious Bay meets the Hinge Zone. From looking at maps and satellite imagery as well as aerial photograph, this seemed like an interesting area. While there, we came across a number of very interesting features of the terrain. In the picture, Mat, the Field Guide, is standing on the massive patch of hard blue ice, which looks like it may have been created as a meltpool.
