The expedition named prominent icebergs to help with travel and navigation. This berg, known as the Church Berg, was photographed several times by Ponting over the course of a year. He often included figures to provide a sense of scale. Here, the individual on the right is Anton Omelchenko, the groom, who had been responsible for purchasing the Siberian ponies.
