Weathered ice after blizzard at Cape Evans, and crevasse, looking towards Turks Head.
A view from near the ice foot at Cape Evans looking across McMurdo Sound towards the rocky outcrop called Turks Head. The ice furrows were caused by the three-day blizzard in early March. Ponting described them as 'deep irregular furrows, as though the ice had been turned over by a gigantic plough.'
A thin crevasse stretches from the foreground into the distance parallel to the sea on the right of the ice-foot.
