Here you see Discovery Hut, which is an Antarctic Historic Landmark. It is one of 3 expedition huts that were built by Antarctic Explorers in the Ross Sea area in early 20th Century.
Located on Hut Point Peninsula and separated from McMurdo Station by Winter Quarters Bay, Discovery Hut is a short walk from McMurdo Station. You can wander outside the hut whenever you wish, but to see the interior, you must arrange a tour with one of the guides on the station.
On this particular summer day, a group of folks who were on a pre-winter week of R&R from the South Pole were taking the same tour as a some guests from Europe. The hut itself was very interesting. Also interesting was the meeting between 2 gigapan photographers at this remote hut near the bottom of the world.
The images of this panorama were photographed with a Nikon D80 and stitched with Autopano Pro.
