  • Identify this Island?

    I went to Antarctica in 1994 on board the Akademik Ioffe (very early in her Antarctic career). Anyway my first site of Antarctica ( well the sub Antarctic Islands)- was the attached phot. I have not been able to identify it to this day but its approx postion would have been W61 32'/S62 51' - we were about 45km from Deception Island and this land formation was on the port side of the ship. It may actually either be an Island or some of the 'named ' rock outcrops in the area.Any body have any ideas?

    Also would anyone have any photos of the 'Akademik Ioffe' in her early days before she was modified for tourist trips to Antarctic. At the time I was on her she still had the large metal 'sails' for silent ship operation and I never got a good photo of her.
