Ant­ar­c­tic Pan­ora­mas

During the Ross Sea trip in Janu­ary-Febru­ary 2013, I star­ted to explo­re the pos­si­bi­li­ties of pan­ora­ma pho­to­gra­phy, using a full-frame DSLR, a pan­ora­ma head and a fish-eye len­se. HDR tech­ni­ques were often used, espe­ci­al­ly insi­de the his­to­ri­cal huts, to con­trol the extre­me varia­ti­on in bright­ness, from the dark shadows to brigh­ter are­as. The results are acces­si­ble through the links and inter­ac­ti­ve maps this page. I feel pri­vi­le­ged that I have been able to pho­to­graph such ama­zing and remo­te places this way – plea­se enjoy the results! They are not all tech­ni­cal­ly com­ple­te­ly per­fect, but I think that they nevert­hel­ess pro­vi­de an enjoya­ble visu­al jour­ney to some places which are sacred grounds for many polar enthu­si­asts.

How to dis­play pan­ora­mas 

On this page, you will find navigab­le 360 degree pan­ora­ma shots. Click the play-but­ton to load the pan­ora­ma. You can then navi­ga­te with your mou­se or the but­tons at the bot­tom end of each pan­ora­ma. If you have a touch screen, then you can also easi­ly scroll through the pan­ora­ma with your fin­ger­tips. Desk­top-com­pu­ters will use Flash (if instal­led) and mobi­le devices HTML5 to screen the pan­ora­mas. HTML5 does not show the navi­ga­ti­on but­tons at the lower rim of each pan­ora­ma. Flash-users can also view the pan­ora­ma in full screen mode. To do so, click the but­ton on the far right end, with the four arrows poin­ting at the cor­ners. To see the navi­ga­ti­on but­tons, you have to load the pan­ora­ma first and you have to have a recent Flash­play­er instal­led. This will be the case for most up-to-date desk­top and lap­top com­pu­ters. Mobi­le devices do nor­mal­ly not sup­port Flash.


The lar­ger one of the two heli­c­op­ters during the Ross Sea trip on board MV Ort­eli­us in ear­ly 2013. Wit­hout the­se two helos (and their gre­at pilots and mecha­nics!), we would have missed a lot on this trip. Some important places are fore­see­ab­ly not acces­si­ble wit­hout heli­c­op­ters, as they are most­ly deep in ice, such as McMur­do Base (inclu­ding Hut Point and Obser­va­ti­on Hill). Others are prin­ci­pal­ly inac­ces­si­ble wit­hout the­se fly­ing machi­nes, no mat­ter how good the con­di­ti­ons are. For exam­p­le magi­cal Tay­lor Val­ley (Dry Val­leys).
