Our camera operator Frederique has been on many shoots in cold and other places, for Disney, BBC, National Geographic, SBS... This Greenland expedition is being shot for Nat Geo and, together with South Pole at the end of the year, will become a feature-length documentary.

Today Fred could be seen filming interviews, navigation, sledding sequences, stomping ahead with a GoPro on a 6m camera pole while Heath took her sled. She's like an Eveready bunny.

In the morning much of the snow we ski across is like verglas, shiny and hard until the sun starts to soften it in the afternoon. The last three hours were pretty steamy with snow on the surface of our skis melting in the sun.

As we pitched camp a plane trail caught by a gentle breeze turned into a lyrebird feather.
