Former whaling station, Stromness, South Georgia

This view was taken from a position high above the whaling station of Stromness on South Georgia, along the same route that Sir Ernest Shackleton had taken on his famous expedition to Antarctica in 1914-1917. His epic journey inspired my passion for conserving long-abandoned buildings and artefacts in these remote places as relics of the past but they also act as a reminder that the impact of people remains long after they have departed.
