Automated Weather Station (AWS) on Quelccaya Ice Cap, southern Peru. In this scene we have just finished raising the tower (which explains the external guy ropes and chaotic disarray of instrument cables), and have begun filling in our enclosure-recovery hole into 2010-2011 accumulation. The weather was perfect this day, with little wind, air temperature of -6° C, and incoming solar radiation of ~1,000 W/m^2.
