Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

I wish all visitors to PaaFeltet a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Many new photos ready to 2014.
An additional greeting to all who now find themselves on South Georgia to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Church in Grytviken.
The picture was taken in connection with a shooting competition for workers in Grytviken.

Close on the heels of a previous contributor comes a contribution from Allison Karlsen. Allison has allowed me to scan through a series of slides in color from South Georgia. There are pictures of whaling, wildlife on the island and landscapes. The left photo shows Southern Rockhopper Penguin.
