There were classic photos of penguins and staggeringly vast icy landscapes, and those brave men bundled up in layers, but my absolute favourite photo was this one by Herbert Ponting: the Terra Nova in a Gale.

I think the tilt of the ship and the sheets and rigging stretching across the frame so dramatic! I'd love a print of this for my flat.
What do you think? Or do you prefer the pictures of the penguins?
