Herbert G. Ponting 
Grotto in an iceberg 
1911, 5 January 
Carbon print 
74.6 x 53.8 cm (image) 
The Royal Collection 
RCIN 2580016 
Photograph of the "Terra Nova" seen from inside a grotto that was formed by an iceberg as it turned over, carrying a large floe which froze onto it. Both Ponting and Scott were struck by the colours of the ice inside this ice grotto; they were a rich mix of blues, purples and greens. Ponting thought that this photograph, framing the Terra Nova, was one of his best.
Presented to King George V, 1914
