Stunning photos of Antarctica

With summer soon 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.

Air New Zealand is giving you the chance to spend two-weeks in Antarctica with National Geographic photographer Jason Edwards. You will track wildlife, ice-shelf formations and learn from the researchers at New Zealand’s Antarctic base. We think this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for passionate LAEM readers, so enter here. Go on, make a difference.
