Bergs and floe off Cape Evans.

A general view from Cape Evans looking across McMurdo Sound towards the icebergs of various sizes and shapes. In the foreground is pancake ice and two penguins on a larger floating mass of ice.

Icebergs would arrive on the tide and sometime remain there until the wind and tide took them away again. Ponting records that during March 'several picturesque specimenstook the ground half-a-mile off our cape'
