The Iceberg Graveyard, Pleneau Island.      Click to View the Photo Gallery

This shallow bay adjacent to Pleneau Island and at the southern terminus of the Lemaire Channel gets filled with grounded icebergs where they remain stuck as they slowly melt away into weird and fantastic shapes. This was also the southernmost point on our journey to Antarctica. Numerous Crabeater Seals and one Leopard Seal hauled out onto the ice platforms for a snooze.

    Beautiful shot, incredible colors and shapes! My trip around South Georgia was great for wildlife and scenery but I missed the ice bergs. We had very few. Need to go back south for more.
