With summer just starting in the Southern Hemisphere, Antarctica is finally getting some love from the sun after a long and cold winter. Of course, with sunlight and warmer temperatures comes researchers and scientists; tracking, reporting, discovering and learning. In fact, there is actually a lot happening in Antarctica at the moment and some great pictures are coming back of both man-made and natural scenes. Looks pretty idyllic to me.
