Early morning sunrise during the winter at Rothera Point on the Antarctic Peninsula. The sea ice was just starting to form with some pancake formations visible. I hand-held the camera rather than put it on a tripod as the air temperature was getting a bit nippy to be hanging around too long! The colours in winter are particularly intense during the winter months due to the low angle of the sun in the sky (i.e. this image has only had the contrast tweaked).
