An iconic image of the ‘Terra Nova’ framed in the opening of an iceberg during Capt. Scott’s British Antarctic Expedition (1910-13). Herbert Ponting has left us with a wealth of images covering the important early exploration of the Antarctic continent. Not long after arriving in Antarctica, Ponting discovered a grotto in an iceberg, and took this photograph looking out towards the Terra Nova, about a mile distant. In the mouth of the cave, geologists Taylor and Wright can be seen inspecting the ice tunnel. Ponting himself said of this photograph, “I secured none more beautiful the entire time I was in the South.” Photographer: Herbert Ponting. See also our poster of this same image (#16938).
