5.0 out of 5 stars WHAT A 5 STAR BOOK...., 16 May 2011
This review is from: With Scott to the Pole: Terra Nova Expedition 1910-1913; The Photographs of Herbert Ponting (Hardcover)
...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!

5.0 out of 5 stars A photographic genius., 18 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: With Scott to the Pole: Terra Nova Expedition 1910-1913; The Photographs of Herbert Ponting (Hardcover)
This the most wonderful book - I have long been fascinated by Scott's expeditions and have many books on the subject but I am also a photographer. After a trip to the ship Discovery (close to where I live), I bought this book and the book of Scott's lost photographs, having been influenced by the photography of that time, particularly Ponting's work. In this digital age to have achieved what he did with the cameras of the day and the conditions, Ponting was nothing short of a photographic genius.

I have several photographic albums covering two dog sledding trips I made in Norway and it has been fun trying to replicate them in Ponting's style!! Ponting's images are amazing and each page holds a gem.

My husband is very involved in studying this expedition, so three books on the subject helped him along the way.
