Steam clouds rise from glacier-clad Mount Curry, the 551-m-high summit of Zavodovski Island in this aerial view from the south.  Icebergs lie off the shores of the 5-km-wide island, the most frequently visited and northernmost of the South Sandwich Islands.  Two young eruptive fissures extend NE from the summit toward craters located below the icecap on the east flank and were the source of a lava platform extending toward Pungent Point (right).
