Kicking off this year’s round of kite aerial photography is a spherical Panorama of the New Station.

When comparing the above panorama with last year’s panorama you will notice the addition of the wind deflector/USAP logo between the two Station pods. Siding has also been added to the column enclosures (where the columns meet the building). The famous Ceremonial Pole, with the barber pole and the flags of the 12 original signatories of the Antarctic treaty, has been moved to be right in front of the USAP logo.
I’ll be adding more panoramas in the next few days. Stay tuned …
