Ice in Motion - Art Quinn

The ice near Palmer Station is in constant motion, changing every minute. In the following pictures, I use time-lapse photography to show the live flow of the ice.

If you watch long enough, the images morph. Here I see the sky and mountains.

This image depicts a close-up of the water and ice flowing around a rock.

Here is the "satellite view" of the same inlet.

This is a magnified closeup of the ice. Reminds me of a night sky.

More great photos. These really convey the movement of the ice and spray. You spoke of a newly calved glacier today. What does that sound like as it's happening? Maybe you could give us some aural descriptions of your environment, too.

HI! I've been enjoying your blog! The joy you feel in exploring the ice and rock there really shines through in your pictures. I saw a display of paintings about Antarctica a few years ago at OMSI in Portland, OR. It must be fun to explore a place so other from what you've known. Hopefully Starbucks will never open up shop there! Keep having fun and stay warm!!

I'm not sure what I am going to do when I can't get my fix of Antarctica photos from your blog! Thank you for sharing your wonderful images.

David, your photographs (including the ones of ice) are truly spectacular! I particularly liked the ones that show the flow. Your molding process is very interesting, too.
