Billefjord

We ent­e­red Isfjord just in time. Not much later, others were fee­ding the fishes on the same rou­te.

Some suc­cess on the quest for pho­to­gra­phing old stuff at well-known pla­ces in new per­spec­ti­ves. A ship on land, a rail­way track going nowhe­re. Silent sym­bols for the fruit­less efforts of man to ste­al nature’s tre­a­su­res in the arc­tic. Why not just lea­ve it?

Admit­ted­ly, we still wan­ted to, well, not to ste­al a tre­a­su­re, but to take some lon­ged-after memo­ries home with us. Today’s peace­ful way to make use of arc­tic natu­re tre­a­su­res. We were lucky, and it worked. A final high­light of a trip that was qui­te dif­fe­rent from what I had in my head befo­re we set off. The wea­ther ruled severely for qui­te some time. But loo­king back, in the sun­ny light of the days that were to fol­low, it all came tog­e­ther to shape a com­ple­te impres­si­on of the late sum­mer arc­tic. A hap­py Anti­gua ent­e­red Advent­fjor­den in the evening.
