Great lighting, great angle, fantastic plane. Basler does an amazing job on those; this plane will fly for another 20+ years.

Not only the photo shows "midnight" in Antarctica in the middle of summer, which is truly amazing, it also says that the camera actually works in these harsh freezing conditions. Almost forgot, great photo!

If I were to choose one of the best pictures, this would certainly be one of them, Unique scenery, excellent aircraft details, right light, well framed. clearly identified and unusual view of the turbo engines, White aircraft on the snow with a color highlight of the canadian flag on the ruder. Perfect.

To begin with, it is a Douglas DC-3, secondly, it has landed a "bit" North in Canada, third, airplane and landscape make a B U T ful combination of grace, elegance, beauty and skill.

Pure white airplane on the white continent. VERY beautiful. Very nice photo!

But the chances to find it in case of emergency - ZERO. Bad idea.
