Snares Islands (2 o 3)

Snares Islands

The Snares Islands are a group of small islands, exposed to the southern oceans. They are made of granite into which the sea has cut steep cliffs, making it difficult to land. This view looks southwards towards South Promontory, with Broughton Island in the background.
