South Georgia

These images were taken on a task to record the glaciers and volcanic activity for the artic survey team. The spectacular views were taken from a RAF Hercules which circled the island. History is abundant here with tales of explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton, (who is buried on the island), to whaling/sealing, german raiders during WWII, and the sovereignty dispute by Argentina.
