Here are the remains of the whaling factory that lies at the head of North Bay in Prince Olav Harbour on South Georgia.
The station supported a floating whaling factory named the Restitution from 1911 to 1916. The shore-based factory that you see here was set up after the Restitution sank in 1916. The machines remained in service until the station closed in 1931.
Today fur seals have reclaimed the bay. You can see lots of them swimming by the shore and even more of them on the shoreline and among the buildings.
This panorama was made from 38 images captured with a hand-held Nikon D80 while I was standing in a moving zodiac. It was stitched on terra firma with Autopano Pro .
