Photograph of the "Endurance' trapped in ice, viewed accross smoothly contoured ice hummocks.
Endurance sits benignly at rest in the midst of the ice field. A recent blizzard has coated the hummocks in a layer of snow, softening the contours. All looks peaceful, but within a few months these same hummocks will have crushed the ship.
