Sun Set/Rise (and a few halos)

A winter sunrise over the ACB, Halley Antarctica

The ACB at sunset. This was taken late in the season, so it was well below -35C. These low temperatures cause the water vapour in the generator exhaust to condense. Then I just had to wait for the wind to blow from the South, which hardly ever happened, to get this nice picture.

A winter sunset over the ICB, Halley Antarctica

The ICB at sunset. As I was a Met Man, I got to go outside on a regular basis. you soon get the idea to take your camera every time and, consequently, get to see & snap a lot of sunsets & sunrises.

The Union Flag at Halley Antarctica

We got through one flag each year - they get ripped to shreds by all the storms. The flag is lowered on the last day of sunshine in May and a new one raised when the sun returns in August. By the time the ship arrives in December, it'll look something like this.
