This is a distant view of the Pebble Island Homestead, as we return on the late afternoon of the 2nd.

In the late afternoon light, and it might have been a spring tide, these South American Terns were diving for some marine food source in the waves…

Next morning I was due to fly out and I got up early, I think before breakfast, to photograph the old farm buildings.  There is very little farm activity going on these days and little explanation required of these images.

Trivial milestone:  I estimate that with this post there are 10,000 images in this blog.  In a couple of posts, if you printed all those images out on A4 paper and stretched them end to end, they would make three kilometres of prints.  There are also over 260,000 words, enough for a 575 page book even without the images.

Note:  Posts may slow down for the next few weeks.  I will be working on images from the Thredbo Blues Festival 2017 and though I have a few Falklands posts ready, I have yet to start on South Georgia.

  2. I do like the ‘ventilated’ barn about half way down the post.
