Antarctic dawn

Concordia at dusk

Nothing is more remote than the South Pole, you’d think, right? That’s true in a way, but ever since Concordia research station was established there, “Point Nemo” has garnered some attention. The truth of the matter is that you can fly a plane to the South Pole as the ice and landscape there are flat and hard enough to land. If you took a water plane to Point Nemo, well, make it a big and well-balanced one then, I’d say.

I’m not sure either why I think about Andøya in Norway when looking at that image. We lived there for quite a while.  It’s not as remote as the South Pole. Then, of course, we would get skies like this all the time, too.

It’s immensely beautiful in real life!
