Nature photography, political rants, and Martyman laughs from the ten-time award-winning author of "Cool Creatures, Hot Planet," "Endangered Edens," and the "Time Is Irreverent" series.

Giving Atlas a break

Marty’s photo of the day #3169: I can’t believe it was seventeen years ago today that Deb and I stepped onto Antarctica! It seems like just a few years ago. At the time, we were among the first 100,000 people in the history of the world to step onto the continent. Since then that number has increased quite a bit, and I think part of the reason is that travelers can now easily get a “bone spurs waiver,” so they don’t have to take their turn holding up the Earth. I, of course, would never shirk on such a responsibility and gave Atlas the break he deserved.
