    This site has millions of feathers from the previous season's molting. Is the feature in the background natural or man made?

    Hi Edyflwr , this is all natural, no man made objects in this view that we've been able to make out. Looks pretty wild 😃

    Those feathers are amazing. I guess, given the bashing they have each year on adult penguins they must be made of truly tough protein 😃

    The feature in the back looks like a road. I've see images without snow. Pretty amazing rock formation.

    I'm surprised the feathers didn't blow away in a winter storm.

    Do you mean that long grey streak (under my red line here:

    ? It looks like a vertical ice face 😃

    Yes, that. When there is no snow, it's there too.

    I'm not sure about this place, it could be a bit of very old lava flow for example. Let's keep an eye on it see if we can work it out 😄

    @AvastMH - https://talk.penguinwatch.org/#/subjects/APZ000cudx. It looks like the top of a hill. There are penguins on it.

    The braided river in background gives a clue about surrounding land.

    We've seen a bit of it in pictures from about 2 years ago when the camera faced a bit further in that direction. I'll see if I can find one

    It's definitely interesting. 😃 When it's covered with snow, it looks like a road or bridge.
