In this Feb. 1, 2015 photo, Russian Orthodox priest Sophrony Kirilov, 38, opens the door to the sacristy at the Holy Trinity Church, on King George Island, Antarctica. In the chilly Antarctic summer months, tourists and the staff of the international stations brave strong winds and hike here. While some pray in silence, others simply marvel at the gold-leaf iconostasis panels painted with bearded saints and winged angels. (AP Photo/Natacha Pisarenko)
