Royal Bay and Larsen Harbor

Dec 08, 2017 - National Geographic Orion


A little snow can go a long way in changing a landscape. As it is still “early” season here in South Georgia getting to see this environmental condition gives us a small taste of what it might be like during the winters down here, albeit drastically sunnier. The wildlife is seemingly unperturbed by inclement weather and we follow suit, gearing up and braving the elements for the very worthwhile sights this magical island has to offer.

About the Author

Ian Strachan

Naturalist/Certified Photo Instructor

One steady constant in Ian’s life has been the ocean. Born by the rocky shores of mid-coast Maine, his family repatriated to far north Queensland in Australia early on in his life where he became a dual-citizen and sparked his passion for exploring new environments. Living only an hour away from the Great Barrier Reef served to direct, if not focus, the exhilaration of discovery and set him on his current path. Returning to native soil for education, Ian was fascinated by altogether too many subjects, leaving him with a bachelor’s degree from Wheaton College in Psychobiology, focusing on animal behavior and perception, and with minors in Astronomy, History, and Environmental Science.
