Caption: Antarctic ice grotto and Terra Nova. View from inside a large curved ice grotto in an iceberg, with the ship Terra Nova in the distance. The date is 8 January 1911 during the British Antarctic Expedition (1910-1913). The ship had arrived here at Cape Evans four days earlier. Also known as the Terra Nova Expedition, the primary expedition objectives were scientific. Led by Robert Falcon Scott, a shore party of 33 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. This photograph by Herbert George Ponting, became a famed and iconic image of the expedition.
