Pair of Snowy Sheathbill's on Elephant Island. This was at the desolate beach on Point Wild where Ernest Shackleton's crew survived for 4 months in 1916 while Shackelton managed to sail to South Georgia and ultimately assure their rescue. I assume that the Sheathbill's (as well as the Penguins and Seals) would have been on the menu for the sailors during this time. Image taken with a Leica T camera and 18-56 mm lens (ISO 100, 56 mm, f/16, 1/500 sec). Raw image processed with Capture One Pro, Focus Magic, and Photoshop CC.
