WHAT A 5 STAR BOOK...., 16 May 2011
...this is - Herbert Ponting transported his cameras, photographic plates and chemicals into and around the Antarctic and came up with these beautiful photographs that encapture the whole atmosphere of the men, their living conditions, and the wilderness of the Ice itself. Amazing to reflect that these were taken over a 100 years ago because they look as if they were actually shot yesterday. I cannot recommend this book highly enough for quality, detail and the general Wow factor!
