Photo of the Week: Cooling Off

Our current hot weather is the inspiration for Photo of the Week. What better antidote to a blistering hot Texas summer than a shot of a lovely ice cave? This photograph comes from one of Eliot Porter's trips to Antarctica aboard the National Science Foundation's research vessel, the Hero, in the mid-1970s when Porter was in his mid-70s.
