Frozen Sunlight-Amchitka (Fighter Strip Construction)
This frozen and seemingly quiet landscape is actually the scene of great activity. Beyond the tents which house Army personnel is the drained lake bottom where the construction of the fighter strip progresses the day to day. The flat tundra of the island is in sharp contrast to the mountainous character of the rest of the Aleutian Chain.
