Deception Island

Deception Island has got to be one of the world's strangest and most evocotive places. Listed as an active volcano it lies in the southern end of the South Shetlands and as you can see steam rises from the Antarctic soil. Although this isn't soil but some nine inches of volcanic ash from the last eruption the 1970s. You can see the remains of the old whaling station in the background.
