After landing at Peggotty Bluff - the site of Ernest Shackleton's camp after crossing the Southern Ocean to organize a rescue for the shipwrecked crew of the Endurance - we sailed out of King Haakon Bay and down the Southwest Coast of South Georgia. Spectacular mountains and glaciers were surrounded by surreal cloud formations ... a site seen by very few humans, possibly none since the whaling days of the early part of the last century.
The bright sun posed a photographic challenge, juxtaposing harsh light with dark mountains in shadow. And add to this shooting hand-held from the deck of a ship rolling over 10 degrees in a 30+mph wind!
