Chinstrap Penguins coming from morning swim

Orne Harbour, Antarctica

 

Orne Harbour lies on the northwest side of the Arctowski Peninsula, near the northern entrance to Errera Channel. It was discovered by Gerlache in 1898 and named by whalers. The harbour has two parts and is surrounded by glaciers. At the southern entrance lies Spigot Peak, a black 286 m (938 ft) tall spire named after a spigot or cask plug.
