Photograph by Lars Focke

 

In this portrait by Lars Focke we get a sense of the stark white landscape of Antarctica. Can anyone find the horizon line in this image?

The photo was taken at Neumayer-Station II, a former permanent German Antarctic research base on Atka Bay. It opened in 1992, replacing the old Georg-von-Neumayer-Station. On February 20, 2009, it was replaced by the new permanent research base Neumayer-Station III.

The photo was part of a series on Behance, Neumayer Station II, you can see more picture from it here.
