Night flight across Lon­gye­ar­by­en

Equip­ped with a came­ra he sends his remo­te-con­trol­led qua­dro­co­p­ter on a mid­ni­ght flight across the icy cen­ter of Lon­gye­ar­by­en. The jour­ney starts in upper Lon­gye­arda­len at the con­nec­ting road bet­ween Nyby­en and Huset and takes us across the town, to the coast of Advent­fjor­den. On the other side of the fjord the full moon is stan­ding abo­ve the moun­tains of Hiort­fjel­let. In front of the uni­ver­si­ty buil­ding of UNIS the aeri­al dro­ne stops and turns to the left, catching the view to the air­port and to Isfjor­den. Then it returns to its star­ting point on the same rou­te. On our way back we can see a group of snow­mo­bi­les com­ing down the Lon­gyear­breen gla­cier.
Very impres­si­ve images!

The ‘came­ra­man’ Hein­rich Eggen­fell­ner lives in Lon­gye­ar­by­en and some of the Spits­ber­gen tra­velers might know him as skipper/owner of the Arc­ti­ca II, a boat which Spitsbergen-Svalbard.com uses for sai­ling tours sin­ce 2014.

By the way, my new book is in print and it can now be orde­red 🙂 it is a pho­to book with the tit­le “Nor­we­gens ark­ti­scher Nor­den (1): Spitz­ber­gen – vom Polar­licht bis zur Mit­ter­nachts­son­ne”, with Ger­man text Click here for fur­ther details!
