The Risting Glacier 54°46'S 36°6'W flows into the head of Drygalski Fjord on South Georgia.

This picture captures it in a fearsome mood with the jagged teeth of the recently snow-dusted mountains behind adding an air of menace. South Georgia may be the sub-Antarctic but it can be every bit as daunting as the deep south.

 

These are pictures from a trip to Antarctica in the summer of 2010 - 2011 for the purpose of researching former whaling stations and companies by Ulf Gustafsson of the University of Groningen in the Netherlands.
