A finger of the Cook Ice Cap meets a fjord on La Grande Terre, the largest of the Kerguelen Islands. Also known as the Desolation Islands, the Kerguelens are located in the Antarctic and are among the most isolated places on Earth — more than 2,100 miles (3,300 km) from Madagascar in the southern Indian Ocean. The islands have no indigenous inhabitants, but since they are part of the French Southern and Antarctic Lands, they host a permanent presence of 45-100 soldiers, scientists, engineers and researchers from France. /// Created by @eli anderson , source imagery: @maxartechnologies

This is also the closest land to the antipode of where I live! Hopefully I’ll see it one day. I had to settle for visiting Mauritius instead
