Panoramic view of Stromness... John Buchanan February 10, 2019 a historic whaling station to which Sir Ernest Shackleton returned after his epic adventure in 1917. (Click image to enlarge.) Beginning the short walk from Stromness to Shackleton’s waterfall, one mile up the valley. Shackleton’s waterfall, the last obstacle on the crossing of South Georgia. My reflection in an Antarctic fur seal’s eye.
