Beauty Can Be Unforgiving

Written by: George Chittenden : 21 Jul 2019

This beautiful photo was taken on Jan 5th, 1911 by Herbert Ponting during the British Antarctic Expedition of 1910-1913. The expedition had various scientific and geographical objectives. It was led by Captain Scott who wanted to be the first to reach the geographic South Pole.

On January 17th, 1912, they reached the pole, only to find that a Norwegian party led by Roald Amundsen, had beaten them there. Tragically, Captain Scott and the remaining men died of starvation and exposure in their tent on March 29th, 1912.
