This photo was taken by Ice Team Leader Brian Newham this aftermoon. A full update of the team’s progress today will follow later, but if Brian has had enough time to take a picture things are certainly not all bad!

Thinking of sunsets, if you reckon you can do better post your best photo (taken by you!) on our Facebook page or send to and we’ll select our favorite. The winner will get a personal email from Sir Ranulph Fiennes.
