Exploring Antarctic ice grotto. British geologist Thomas Griffith Taylor (1880-1963) and Canadian physicist Charles Seymour Wright (1887-1975) standing at the entrance to a large curved ice grotto in an iceberg on 5 January 1911 during the British Antarctic Expedition (1910-1913). Also known as the Terra Nova Expedition, the primary expedition objectives were scientific. Led by Robert Falcon Scott, a shore party of 33 (including Taylor and Wright) landed on 4 January 1911 and spent two seasons exploring on and around the Ross Ice Shelf. Scott and four others died in 1912 returning from their journey to the South Pole.
