Dry Valleys of Antarctica

Found an incredible slide show of pictures taken in the "Dry Valleys" area of Antarctica. The picture above is of one of the clearest frozen lakes in the world. Most of these valleys get very little snow fall, but almost all of them have significant ice in them. So I'm not sure how "dry" they are, but I guess that in comparison to other areas of Antarctica they seem dry. You can read all about the dry valleys here.
You should also check out the slide show Washington post: Exploring Antarctica The slide show has some truly amazing pictures, as well as captions and brief descriptions.

The photographer who took the pictures also has a website here.
