Nice one Wayland, thanks. Yes, it did look like a dose of food poisoning for sure, thanks for the badge link
Pete, thanks for the lend of the gear, shoes worked fine once I got to grips with them ( first time using snowshoes ) the stove though, no chance, we couldn't get it to light mate but we got by, thanks though
I was very limited by the condition of the ice and had to stay pretty well on the land or close to it. You need darkness and space to see the sky, with a bit of foreground to help so I had basically three viewpoints and variations of the same to work with.
This was the night we set out to see you guys in the woods but I'm afraid you were trumped by the Aurora.
