Caption: Terra Nova Antarctic winter hut and camp, with stores and skis, under moonlight. This scene was photographed in the depths of the Antarctic polar night on 13 June 1911, one day past the Full Moon. Mount Erebus is in the background. This hut was the winter quarters of 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 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. Photographed by Herbert George Ponting.
