Antarctica Whaling Station

Leave a comment

Antarctica Whaling Station, Deception Island

At one time whaling was huge industry in the Antarctica region.  Dotted across the region are old whaling stations, long abandoned where ships would bring whales that were caught, drag them ashore, butcher them and process them.  Stories of bays turning red because of all the blood abound.  Now all that’s left are rusty tanks, pumps, boilers and old building that barely stand.  Of course this is my kind of place liking decay and rust as much as I do.  Today’s image is a shot (one of hundreds) of a whaling station on Deception Island along the Antarctica Peninsula.
