"Big ice-clad mountains the world over engender feelings of awe & humility.
The unbridled majesty of icescape Antarctica goes far beyond this.
Master of such a forbidding environment, ice forces us to ponder our frailty & vulnerability as humans on this incredible planet. And yet, the arrogance of human "rule" of the planet has created havoc through overpopulation & misuse of resources.
In Antarctica, it is humbling to realise that ice makes all the rules."
