This lantern slide shows two whaling ships searching for seals in an icy sea. The ship nearest has her stern to the camera and is on the right side of the photograph; her sails are furled and she is casting a reflection in the water. The further ship also has her sails furled and is viewed from the port quarter. She is passing a fairly large iceberg.
