Five hundred metres


My Antarctic now includes the peninsula, and is finally looking more like itself with the 500m contour. Here it is being pinned together last week, but I've already stitched round most of the steep coast of the continent. Only the shallow slopes of West Antarctica remain, so I'm mentally preparing myself for the final, sea level, contour which I expect to be a technical challenge involving shelf ice and many islands.

When I saw this latest version, I thought the pins were marking the location of bases on the Peninsula at first. It looks great!
