Risting Glacier, Drygalski Fjord – South Georgia



Oil on board in bespoke gilded frame. Painting size 70×100 cm, framed 87x128cm.

At the end of the 5 mile long Drygalski fjord one comes up against the Risting Glacier. We spent a wonderful evening watching the sun slowly drop in the sky producing a stunning light show of reflections, highlights and luminescence. The peak only lasted about twenty minutes and as soon as the sun went behind the peaks of Mount Cares the ice reverted back to sombre hues of grey and blue tints. Chinstrap penguins sit on one of the larger ice flows.
