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).
