Forgot to mention the beautiful trade off for getting up so early. Standing outside, ice stretching from horizon to horizon, the ship softly crunching a path through it, soft grey sky, and below me on the heli deck an anonymous figure in AAD-issue hooded jacket and black and yellow rigger gloves doing Tai Chi at 3am.

It was worth missing sunrise for that.
