Melchior Islands, Antarctica

The Melchior Islands are a series of low, rocky islands in Dallmann Bay in the Palmer Archipelago. The snow-topped islands are pounded by waves from the Drake Passage, and the rocks have been sculpted by this wave action. These images were taken on a zodiac cuise through the Melchior Islands, our last stop in Antarctica.
