Portrait of Ice Maiden Sophie Montagne

Very honoured to have met and photographing this inspiring young lady –  Sophie Montagne.     As covered recently on the BBC news, Sophie is part of the first all female team attempting to cross Antartica later in November this year.   The team has just returned from 3 weeks training in the Norwegian Wilderness, where they have skied 463km and climbed over 6000m, pulling 50kg behind them (about 75% of their bodyweight).

In November, their 3 month journey will be cover 1,700km during which they will be battling temperatures of -50C with wind speeds over 60mph.    Some feat.   Follow them on twitter @exicemaiden.
