Caption: Cliffs and sea ice. View over cliffs towards the frozen waters of the Novolazarevskaya Nivl Ice Shelf along the Princess Astrid Coast, Queen Maud Land, Antarctica. The giant peaks and troughs of ice are not solid waves, but are caused by compression as the sea water further out freezes and expands. The cliffs in the foreground are part of the rocky Schirmacher Oasis and are composed of colourful gneiss rock, rising 100 metres above the frozen ocean. Photographed in November 2016.
