Caption: Grytviken whaling station, South Georgia, covered in snow. This is one of several abandoned whaling stations in South Georgia. The church (right) was prefabricated in Norway and erected here in 1913. Many of the storage buildings are rusting away (left). Grytviken was abandoned in 1965 because of declining stocks of whales. This whaling station is part of a restoration project aimed at preserving the cultural heritage of whalers and whaling.
