An hour after sailing around the Acropolis iceberg, we encountered an iceberg with siz chinstrap penguins along for the ride.  There are two of them here, and six snow petrels in the background.

.

Cape Petrel, Chinstrap penguins, Drygalski Fjord, Icebergs, Landscape, Nature, Photography, seascape, Snow Petrel, South Georgia, Travel, Wilderness, Wildlife

Here are the other four, not far from the first two.

And from another angle, as the ship sails by.

Frank Zappa warned “Don’t you eat the yellow snow” (Apostrophe, 1972), though here it’s ice and there are no huskies (or eskimos) to be seen.

.

Snow petrels and chinstrap penguins.

.

Cape Petrel, Chinstrap penguins, Drygalski Fjord, Icebergs, Landscape, Nature, Photography, seascape, Snow Petrel, South Georgia, Travel, Wilderness, Wildlife

Here the are from a bit further back.  Hard to tell whether this is the bow or the stern of their ship.

.

Cape Petrel, Chinstrap penguins, Drygalski Fjord, Icebergs, Landscape, Nature, Photography, seascape, Snow Petrel, South Georgia, Travel, Wilderness, Wildlife

An overall view from the back.  So no penguins visible now.

.

Cape Petrel, Chinstrap penguins, Drygalski Fjord, Icebergs, Landscape, Nature, Photography, seascape, Snow Petrel, South Georgia, Travel, Wilderness, Wildlife

Its shape looks quite different from different angles.

.

Cape Petrel, Chinstrap penguins, Drygalski Fjord, Icebergs, Landscape, Nature, Photography, seascape, Snow Petrel, South Georgia, Travel, Wilderness, Wildlife

Here they are again.  After they calve from an ice shelf, icebergs can melt in the sun, become unstable and turn over.  You don’t want to go too close to an iceberg because you never know when that will happen (though the penguins probably don’t greatly care).  That diagonal; grey strip is probably a previous water line.

.

Cape Petrel, Chinstrap penguins, Drygalski Fjord, Icebergs, Landscape, Nature, Photography, seascape, Snow Petrel, South Georgia, Travel, Wilderness, Wildlife

Here they are again.  They’ve shuffled their order since first encountered.

 

Cape Petrel, Chinstrap penguins, Drygalski Fjord, Icebergs, Landscape, Nature, Photography, seascape, Snow Petrel, South Georgia, Travel, Wilderness, Wildlife

Maybe the two on top have moved.

Blue lines on icebergs can be caused by fresh water that is quickly frozen.  The brown lines.are probably from a layer of dust, perhaps when the ice was part of a glacier.

.

Cape Petrel, Chinstrap penguins, Drygalski Fjord, Icebergs, Landscape, Nature, Photography, seascape, Snow Petrel, South Georgia, Travel, Wilderness, Wildlife

Those two penguins are certainly well away from the waves.

.

Cape Petrel, Chinstrap penguins, Drygalski Fjord, Icebergs, Landscape, Nature, Photography, seascape, Snow Petrel, South Georgia, Travel, Wilderness, Wildlife

Here are some cape petrels beside the iceberg.  Perhaps looking for some fish thrown up in the turbulence.

Drygalski Fjord, Icebergs, Landscape, Nature, Photography, seascape, South Georgia, Travel, Wilderness

From Cooper Bay, we continued on towards Drygalski Fjord, near the southernmost point of South Georgia.  The clear weather of Cooper Bay continued, at least for a while.

.

Drygalski Fjord, Icebergs, Landscape, Nature, Photography, seascape, South Georgia, Travel, Wilderness

I thought we turned back from Drygaslski Fjord because of weather conditions but other accounts indicate we decided to study some icebergs instead.  In any event, we turned around and returned along the north-east coast the way we had come.  You might think it would be desirable to circumnavigate the island but the south-west coast offers no protection for the ship from the frequent storms so in the interests of safety we did not venture that way.

.

Drygalski Fjord, Icebergs, Landscape, Nature, Photography, seascape, South Georgia, Travel, Wilderness

Visibility was starting to decrease.

.

Drygalski Fjord, Icebergs, Landscape, Nature, Photography, seascape, South Georgia, Travel, Wilderness

The majestic mountains of South Georgia are retreating into the mist and fog.

.

Drygalski Fjord, Icebergs, Landscape, Nature, Photography, seascape, South Georgia, Travel, Wilderness

The varied shapes of several icebergs provide a contrast with the murky mountain background.

.

Drygalski Fjord, Icebergs, Landscape, Nature, Photography, seascape, South Georgia, Travel, Wilderness

Not a place out there where you’re likely to meet many people.

Drygalski Fjord, Icebergs, Landscape, Nature, Photography, seascape, South Georgia, Travel, Wilderness

Our first glimpse of part of the Acropolis Iceberg.  I’ll explain why I call it that soon.

.

Drygalski Fjord, Icebergs, Landscape, Nature, Photography, seascape, South Georgia, Travel, Wilderness

Another iceberg nearby.  These are all massive blocks of ice.

.

Drygalski Fjord, Icebergs, Landscape, Nature, Photography, seascape, South Georgia, Travel, Wilderness

Long and low and in front of the coast.  Most of it is of course under water.

.

Drygalski Fjord, Icebergs, Landscape, Nature, Photography, seascape, South Georgia, Travel, Wilderness

I’ll name this one soon for its appearance from another angle.

.

Drygalski Fjord, Icebergs, Landscape, Nature, Photography, seascape, South Georgia, Travel, Wilderness

Back with the Acropolis iceberg.  It is late afternoon, nearing sunset.

.

Drygalski Fjord, Icebergs, Landscape, Nature, Photography, seascape, South Georgia, Travel, Wilderness

Acropolis iceberg in the front (we’ve only seen a small part of it previously) and the Sphinx iceberg in the distance (as seen previously from a different angle).

.

Drygalski Fjord, Icebergs, Landscape, Nature, Photography, seascape, South Georgia, Travel, Wilderness

This is why I call it the Acropolis iceberg.  the face of the big foreground block is like a frieze from the Parthenon.  Carved by penguins perhaps.  Click on the image to see greater detail.

.

Drygalski Fjord, Icebergs, Landscape, Nature, Photography, seascape, South Georgia, Travel, Wilderness

A view from round the corner.  The frieze is now facing out to the left.

.

Drygalski Fjord, Icebergs, Landscape, Nature, Photography, seascape, South Georgia, Travel, Wilderness

So is it the Acropolis or perhaps the Parthenon or maybe the British Museum where Elgin lost his marbles?

.

Drygalski Fjord, Icebergs, Landscape, Nature, Photography, seascape, South Georgia, Travel, Wilderness

A section from the massive side.  The penguins have only just started carving out a frieze here.

.

Drygalski Fjord, Icebergs, Landscape, Nature, Photography, seascape, South Georgia, Travel, Wilderness

The sea breaking against the iceberg and the background is clearing a bit.  You can see the smooth band at the bottom of the visible part of the iceberg where it rides up and down against the sea.

From Grytviken, we sailed south along the coast towards a small harbour called Godthol.  The first three images are views of icebergs and the shore along the way.

A recently wounded bull fur seal, encountered just after disembarking from the zodiac.

.

Fur seal, Gentoo Penguins, Icebergs, Landscape, Nature, Photography, seascape, South Georgia, South Georgia Cormorant, Travel, Wilderness, Wildlife

It was Spring and at many places along the coast, male fur seals were fiercely defending territory while they awaited the arrival of the females.

.

Fur seal, Gentoo Penguins, Icebergs, Landscape, Nature, Photography, seascape, South Georgia, South Georgia Cormorant, Travel, Wilderness, Wildlife

This is a young fur seal.  You had to be careful walking though the knee-high tussocks by the beach, so as not to stumble into a fur seal.

.

Fur seal, Gentoo Penguins, Icebergs, Landscape, Nature, Photography, seascape, South Georgia, South Georgia Cormorant, Travel, Wilderness, Wildlife

Not so much of a problem asleep in the open, though.

.

Here Roy Mangersnes is having a close encounter with a female elephant seal.  Elephant seals are not a problem in the same way as fur seals.

.

Gentoo penguin.

Most of our party headed off over the hills seeking nesting birds, possibly albatrosses, I don’t remember.  I stayed at the beach which turned out to be fortunate.  I managed to score a zodiac ride in the bay with just a few others, as the approaching sunset cast a glow in the water, partly reflected off the yellow grasses on the hills.

Fjallsárlón

Day 65 to 66. 2nd to 3rd September. Fjallsárlón, South Iceland.

.

Fjallsárlón, Fjallsjókull Glacier, Glacier, Icebergs, Iceland, Jökulsárlón, Landscape, Nature, Photography, seascape, Travel, Wilderness

I had decided to be at Fjallsárlón (glacial lake) for sunrise the next day.  So I decided to go there in the afternoon to ensure there was an overnight place for the campervan and no problems getting in and out.  This is the view across Fjallsárlón to Fjallsjökull glacier. (For location, see the map in the Hofn to Jökulsárlón post).

.

Fjallsárlón, Fjallsjókull Glacier, Glacier, Icebergs, Iceland, Jökulsárlón, Landscape, Nature, Photography, seascape, Travel, Wildernesst

We saw a wide angle view of Fjallsjökull (glacier) in the previous image and this is clearly not that, so we must be looking across nearby Breiðsárlón (glacial lake) to Breiðamerkurjökull (glacier) (which empties into the Jökulsárlón lagoon).

And now it’s clear again.  A sudden five-minute weather change?  Well no, actually it is now nearly sixteen hours later, at the next morning and before the dawn.  Not much in the way of further comment required for following images, I think.
