Here you see Gavin Booth and Adam Wilton of the British South Pole Expedition 2008 as they arrive at the South Pole on December 27. Their 700 mile, unsupported ski journey from Hercules Inlet to the South Pole raised funds for the UK Antarctic Heritage Trust.
As they cross the skiway they are greeted by Leah Street, one of our summer crew members who is also a volunteer tour guide. She will show them to the Geographic South Pole marker, the Ceremonial Pole and to the spot where they can pitch their tents. They will get a brief tour of the station and then wait in their camp for the plane that will take them back to the coast.
As a benefit of the shooting and stitching process that created this panorama, you see them again, farther to the right, as they are escorted to the tourist area in front of the station.
This panorama shows a wide view of the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station from the support buildings in the back (grid south) to the science buildings and Ice Cube project toward grid west and grid north. Please enjoy your tour as you explore the snapshots.
The 61 images of this panorama were photographed with a Nikon D 80 and stitched with Autopano Pro.
