This is another Panorama of the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station. This one was taken technically on the 29th, the day after my previous similar shot. Though just barely, this shot was taken at 1 am.

This photo is however, very different. The moon is in front of the station in this shot rather than behind it, which makes the station look completely different. My other shot makes the station look very dark (which it is to provide heating through absorption of the sun's rays), whereas this one is very light, and almost all white.

During the winter, the blowing snow sticks to the station making everything turn white. During the summer season it will not be cold enough to stick, and the sun is there to heat the special black siding also keeping the snow away.

I Intentionally left the moon split between the pano, because I liked the effect .

Unlike my other Pano, this one I remembered to bring my headlamp and make sure everything on the camera was set correctly, and thus this shot is actually in focus! You can clearly see the station details.

This was again taken in temps around -90F. I've had multiple 360 pano attempts fail because the camera's batteries froze before i got spun all the way around :{

This was shot with a Canon EOS-1D Mark II, 16mm, f-stop 2.8 and 30 second exposures
