“I miss my cameras and cinematograph”


“Scenically, our present environments are some of the grandest I have ever set eye on. Cliffs that throw their serrated scarps a thousand feet into the skies are interspersed with glaciers that tumble in crevassed cascades down to the sea…It is a land of nature’s moods—inhospitable—angry… When the sun, in playful mood, pierces the mists and storm clouds, peaks and sea are glorified with transcending gradation of light and shade and then I miss my cameras and cinematograph.”

— Frank Hurley
