New pho­to gal­le­ries and pan­ora­mas from Lomfjord

The light is slow­ly com­ing back the­se days in Spits­ber­gen after the polar night, but it will take ano­t­her 2 weeks more or less until the sun makes it abo­ve the hori­zon again. While it is rela­tively calm in the far north, it is time to get a bit of home­work done. The­re is ple­nty of mate­ri­al for 360 degree pan­ora­mas wai­t­ing to be pro­ces­sed, and the pages with regio­nal descrip­ti­ons on spitsbergen-svalbard.com are to be com­ple­ted with com­pre­hen­si­ve pho­to gal­le­ries from the indi­vi­du­al parts of Sval­bard.

Both requi­res signi­fi­cant time and effort, but the­re is pro­gress. A site that is now com­ple­te with gal­le­ries and pan­ora­mas is the one about Lomfjord in nor­the­as­tern Spits­ber­gen, neigh­bou­ring Hin­lo­pen Strait.

The­se sites are just part of a major deve­lo­p­ment that is aiming at a com­pre­hen­si­ve illus­tra­ti­on of all parts of the Spits­ber­gen archi­pe­la­go (and Jan May­en and parts of Green­land and Ant­arc­ti­ca, for that sake) with pho­to gal­le­ries and navigab­le 360 degree pan­ora­ma mate­ri­al. This requi­res a lot of effort in terms of both time and money. The results are on spitsbergen-svalbard.com and can be free­ly acces­sed at no cost and without regis­tra­ti­on or wha­te­ver, but the web­site and its owner/maker are hap­py about links or like it clicks. If you want to sup­port the­se efforts finan­cial­ly, then plea­se have a look on the right side if the­re is any book or calen­dar that might fit well into your collec­tion or as a pre­sent …
