Caption: Antarctic filming on Terra Nova. Official expedition photographer Herbert George Ponting (1870-1935) filming from the prow of the Terra Nova in December 1910 as it moved through pack ice during the British Antarctic Expedition (1910-1913). Also known as the Terra Nova Expedition, the primary expedition objectives were scientific. Led by Robert Falcon Scott, the shore party of 34 landed at Cape Evans in January 1911. They spent two seasons exploring on and around the Ross Ice Shelf. Scott and four others died in 1912 returning from their journey to the South Pole. Ponting's 1700 photographs are now held by the Scott Polar Research Institute.
