Antarctica - January-February 2006    Port Lockroy
The huge skeleton of a whale lay on the water’s edge and gave us an idea of the scale of these giants of the sea. The abundance of whales in this region made it a station for whalers during their heyday, and it is estimated that 3,000 great whales were cut up here for their oil and other products during the whaling era.
