One-Year Ago (25-December-2014) — South Georgia

Gone to See Antarctica 2014/2015. Hurtigruten Christmas Voyage on the MS Fram. Day 10: Grytviken, South Georgia.

As we departed the abandoned whaling village Grytviken on South Georgia passed the HMS Dragon (D35) at anchor just outside the harbor. There were a lot of big lenses from the Chinese tourists taking pictures of the British Destroyer. I was able to get an in-camera panorama view of the departure with a Fuji X-T1 camera and 23 mm f/1.4 lens (ISO 200, 23 mm, f/16, 1/125 sec).
