Nature vs. humans

King Penguins in Grytvikken, South Georgia

I always like to show how nature is stronger as humans. This picture is an example of that. Grytvikken is an old whaling settlement on South Georgia. In the back you can see an old whaling vessel with the harpoon still on the bow (although I think that was added later) rusting away. In the front the new inhabitants of this place: King Penguins.
