 "... my reading the whole account of Endurance's struggle to find a way through the Weddell Sea ice pack. This is a typical scene from those days - the ship under steam but also sail, as she often seems to have been, no doubt on the principle of every little helps, having just succeeded in cracking open a long lead of dark water in the ice. Ice hummocks in the foreground, bigger bergs in the background, and some inquisitive penguins waddling about." Geoff Hunt
