How did you arrived there? :O This island is just a dot in the middle of the ocean!!! Congratulations for the beautiful shot of a very very unusual place.

Thanks for the compliments - was very lucky to be there on a rare fog free day! Was on a tourist vessel (Akademik Shokalskiy) run by Rodney Russ of Heritage Expeditions; landed on 5 islands/island groups in the Southern Indian Ocean with this trip and had a sail past of McDonald Island. Have spent two summers on Heard Island though in my capacity as a scientist with the Australian Government.

What's a good place to look into the research that goes on on Heard Island? I'm fascinated.
