“South Georgia has become one of ‘those’ places, so steeped in myth and magic that you wonder how a visit can live up to the stories. Happily the landscape shrugs off any human description. I’m still stunned after visiting for the first time and for just a few precious days, I certainly don’t have words to describe it,” wrote photographer Nick Cobbing on his website, Calvings.co.uk
