Antarctic Postcard

Here’s a shot I took quite a few years ago on Fuji film – a firm favourite at the time. I decided to try it through the scanner recently to see if it was salvageable in digital format. It cleaned up quite nice, but is pretty much only ‘postcard’ size. The scene is actually taken on the Antarctic Peninsula island of South Georgia, (see also ‘King Penguin‘). Close to here is the former whaling station of Grytviken, also the burial site of British Explorer Sir Ernest Shakelton, who first crossed the island in 1916. In the old whaling station, whaling ceased here in 1965, is located a small museum and, pre-Covid at least, the area has now become a popular stop off point for Antarctic cruise ships.
