Drygalski Mountains, Antarctica




Couldn't resist posting these fabulous images from Michael Martin's collection.   They are from the Drygalski Range in Antarctica -- and extraordinary set of nunataks in which massive vertical cliffs  and sharp peaks abound.

You can see the location of the lower photo in the upper one -- it's the huge vertical cliff to left of centre, with a vast snowfield beyond.  Look at the men for scale..........

POSTSCRIPT
Found another wonderful image....

Don't know, Myris -- the area is not well studied. Did a search, and found nothing on the geology.....
