Whale Oil Tanks

Whale Oil Tanks, Deception Island, Antarctica

Whale Oil Tanks, Deception Island, Antarctica

Rust is a favorite subject of mine and I am always surprised at how much rust I find in Antarctica.  These are whale oil tanks on Deception Island.   This place is an abandoned and kind of surreal place.  It’s an old whale processing plant from a hundred years ago.  They slaughtered thousand of whales here without any regard.  When you walk the beach there and then see images of the beach back then littered with whale bones it kind of creeps you out.  Thus I shot this image to illicit some mood and tone for what used to take place there.
