The Transantarctic Mountains

Photographer Edmund Stump writes, “As the Andes are to South America and the Himalayas are to Asia, so are the Transantarctic Mountains to Antarctica.” This glorious — and desolate — photograph of the Transantarctic Mountains caught our eye and was an easy pick for Nature Photo of the Week. Thanks to Flickr user Edmund Stump for taking us to the end of the Earth with this photo and for sharing it through The Nature Conservancy’s Flickr group!
