It is wonderful to see actual images taken by Scott on his final attempt at The South Pole. Scott and some of his colleagues were instructed in the art of photography by the Camera Artist of the expedition, Herbert Ponting (who was not part of the final assault on the Pole),and became adept with colour filters, telescopic lenses and orthochromatic plates. He took some wonderful, action-filled images as well as panoramic views.
