Sunset over Lachman Crags on James Ross Island, Antarctica
The Ulu peninsula at the Northern part of James Ross Island represents the larges ice free area in the Antarctic peninsula region. An area where dinosaur and marine animal fossils from the Cretaceous can be found, but also a place which is tremendously interesting for research on early soil development.
The image shows the look from a Brazilian field camp towards Lachman Crags, a large volcanic formation overlaying the Cretaceaous rocks.
