A view from Hut Point towards the Ferrar Glacier and mountains on Victoria Land.

A view from Hut Point towards the mountains on Victoria Land in the distance. The two magnetic huts are in the foreground with the living hut (used for stores) in the middle distance, partially obscuring the Discovery (1901). The windmill has been erected on the foredeck of the ship.

The expedition experienced a significant blizzard on 11 March, and snow can be seen on the huts. The ship has not been banked up with snow, so it must be early on when the ice was beginning to freeze around the ship.
