Sastrugi

By RodStrachan  
A science field party being dropped off at Lake Ellsworth. This location is on the polar plateau and the only thing between here and the south pole is lots of rough sastrugi (i.e. snow ridges) which show the direction of the prevailing winds.

Love the f/g patterns in the snow and with the plane positioned beyond and at the top of the frame.
