Lake Hoare, Antarctica - fresh photos from the Dry Valleys

These pictures are as fresh as they get. I started building this page, sitting at the computer I'd just installed at Lake Hoare. After taking the pictures with Apple QuickTake 150, I used a PowerBook 170 to empty the camera and convert the pictures to JPEGs which I FTPed to Infinet for the world to consume.
