Photographer's Note

Picture taken during the XVIIth Polish Antarctic Expedition.
Ezcurra Inlet is an inlet forming the western arm of Admiralty Bay, King George Island, in the South Shetland Islands, Antarctic. It was charted by the French Antarctic Expedition, 1908–10, under Jean-Baptiste Charcot, and named "Fiord Ezcurra" after Pedro de Ezcurra, an Argentine politician and Minister of Agriculture in 1908, who assisted the French expedition. Shortly after this area was charted, a mariner's guide to the region stated that "the western fijord does not appear to offer good anchorage, as it is too exposed to squalls." Additionally, it was said to have not been used by whalers who frequented the waters due to the ice floes that blocked access to Admiralty Bay.

Nazwano go na cześć Pedro de Ezcurry, argentyńskiego polityka i ministra rolnictwa, który w 1908 roku udzielił wsparcia francuskiej ekspedycji. Na obszarze fiordu leży Wyspa Dufayela (fragment wyspy widoczny z prawej strony).
