The Lone Sentinel, Lest we Forget
Awww, I can't tell you how beautiful I find this photograph. It's a beautiful shot that tugs at the heartstrings. Photographer Douglas Gimesy "At the now abandoned Grytviken whaling station (South Georgia), this lone King penguin stood motionless for several hours, like a solitary sentinel, guarding memories of atrocities past, ensuring that no one forgot what had happened here less than 60 years ago. After about 2 hours of gentle wind, the breeze stopped, it feel silent, and the snow started to fall, making the moment even more poignant."

@nshen1 That's what I thought when I first saw it, it's in South Georgia, an island.
