Whaling Station Ruins

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
 
Whaling Station Ruins
Whaling Station Ruins

A small part of the complex machinery needed to process whale oil rusts in the harbor at the whaling station in Grytviken on South Georgia Island. The station was built in 1904 by Norwegian-born British citizen, Captain Carl Larsen with Argentinian financing. It reached its peak in the 1920s and finally closed in 1966. The site is being restored as a historic reminder of whaling days. Our cruise ship lies in the background.

Wow, I came to congratulate you on your finalist, and by the time I opened the photo, it was a winner! Fantastic work, Wally--amazing how you made a big old piece of machinery look so beautiful. And with the cruise ship in the corner, adding a neat contrast and balance--love it! Oh yeah, and congratulations ... on your WIN! :)
