I have always been fascinated by stories of adventurers who traveled into unknown and treacherous territory in the pursuit of fortune and glory. But, you know what they say, a picture is worth a thousand words, and this is no exception – New Scientist has a gallery of amazing images on their website, taken from a new book and exhibition at the The Queen’s Gallery called The Heart of the Great Alone: Scott, Shackleton & Antarctic Photography. The 11 images in the gallery are stunning, and there are many more on the exhibition’s website.

I know – that’s why we posted it!

There’s MANY more pictures available on the exhibition website too… if you have lots of time to look!

The book might make a good Christmas present…
