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 …

    Wow! This is awesome. I looked at all your other panoramas and I have to say I am impressed. Almost like being there, just not as cold :-)

    The sun gives to a little (hu-/wo-)man a very long shaddow. How often, or when, can/will this be seen?
