Antarctica Time Lapse: A Year on the Ice

(YouTube - Link)

Last year we had posted a really cool time lapse video "The Southern Lights" filmed by Anthony Powell who works at a base in Antarctica which really wowed us all. Now allow me to present to you folks another time lapse video which is just a sample of a larger video that Anthony and his wife Christine (who also lives in Antarctica) are working upon together.
Time-lapse video filmed in Antarctica, in and around McMurdo Station and Scott Base. Each year the sun is below the horizon for 4 months in the middle of winter, and above the horizon for 4 months in summer. During the couple of months in between we have more-or-less normal days.

Includes shots of auroras and the very rare polar stratospheric nacreous clouds, which form when ozone depleting gases crystallize in the upper atmosphere in the intense cold.
Summer population is about 1200 people, winter about 200.

This is just a small sample of an ongoing project to collect time-lapse imagery of Antarctica. I have taken over 1,000,000 individual photos and worn out a number of cameras that make up the collection of footage I have gathered so far over the last 6 years.

Please please please change the spelling of the title! Nothing irritates me more than the incorrect pronunciation of 'Antarctica' as 'An-ar-dik-a'. That will be all. Good post.
