Glacier Moraine Fjord, South Georgia

24 November 1914

Frank Hurley

Presented to King George V, 1917

 

Before the start of the Endurance expedition, Hurley took full advantage of a delay in departure from South Georgia, by travelling along the coastline around Grytviken with his camera equipment in search of subjects. The rugged, craggy mountains and glaciers provided ample material for striking landscape shots, while the shoreline teamed with wildlife.
