(CNN) -- [Updated 3 p.m. Monday, March 12] This photo was taken on South Georgia Island, "an untouched natural paradise of penguins, seals and birds," according to iReporter Jonathan Pozniak.

Pozniak recently visited the remote, barely inhabited British territory, which is southeast of Argentina near the bottom tip of South America.

"We celebrated Mass in the old whalers church (even us nonreligious types couldn't pass up the once-in-a-lifetime experience), hiked up to an elevated lake in the mountains and spent the next few days sailing and exploring the bays, fjords and penguin rookeries around the island," he told CNN. "For us, it defined the word remote and gave us a glimpse of Mother Nature most people don't get to see."

The island is also the final resting place of famed polar explorer Ernest Shackleton.

If you think you know the answer -- or if you just want to take a wild guess -- post it in the comments area below. Later in the day, we'll reveal where the photo was taken and give credit to those who figured it out first. (The more detail, the better!)

Each Monday morning, we'll post a new photo and challenge you to tell us its origin. The photo might be related to a prominent news story or theme -- or it might just be something that caught our eye.

Good luck!
