Mt Herschel, Ross Sea region, Antarctica

As the fog gradually rolled back Mt Herschel appeared in all of its 10,942ft of glory. It rises almost vertically straight out of the Ross Sea and is spectacular after the flatness of the ocean for so many days. We were so lucky to see this incredible mountain because the fog had been so thick for days and the sea ice almost prevented us from getting anywhere near to this area.
