Deception Island

One of the most visited parts of Antarctica, Deception Island is actually a pretty grim spot. The island is of volcanic origin, a dramatic flooded caldera entered via a narrow channel, provoding a sheltered natural harbour. The idea that the volcano was extinct, however, was violently disproved in 1967. These photos are impressions of the remnants of various whaling and scientific station buildings shattered by earthquakes and mudslides.
