I took that photo...! I was HMS Antrim's ships photograper. I processed the film & printed the image in the British Antartic Survey's darkroom in Shackleton House at King Edward Point,Ssouth Georgia. It was subsequently used around the world by the national press.Here's a few more taken then also: http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.3392219278541.2139184.1061421689&type=3&l=7afad320a3
