Paulet Island, seen here from the northwest, is a 1.8 x 2.2 km island located east of the tip of Graham Land Peninsula. A basal sequence of horizontal lava flows exposed in steep cliffs is capped by a well-preserved cinder cone complex (top center) with a small distinct summit crater. The darker brownish areas near and above the shoreline at the center of the photo are Adelie penguin colonies.
