Lone British skiier Mark Langridge arrives at the South Pole. Starting from Hercules Inlet on the Antarctic coast 49 days ago, Mark has made an extraordinary journey across 700 miles the southern continent's white and blue landscape.
A South Pole guide escorts him to the tourist camp, where he will be the sole occupant for a while. A plane will arrive in a few days to take Mark back to Patriot Hills for the 1st leg of his journey homeward.
You can see that Mark got here on a rather foggy day. The South Pole telescopes that are usually prominent in the arrival panoramas are rather obscured in today's fog. Those of us who watch for incoming skiers had some difficulty spotting him on the horizon as he approached his destination. We were very happy to finally see him. Mark, welcome to the South Pole!
The 14 images of this panorama were photographed with a Nikon D80 and stitched with Autopano Pro.
