Mag­da­le­n­efjord – 17th Sep­tem­ber 2015

The day begins as beau­ti­ful­ly as the last one ends. Mag­da­le­ne­jord in morning light, belts of drif­ting gla­cier ice in the sun, you have to have seen that. Did I wri­te some­thing like that befo­re recent­ly? Doesn’t mat­ter, it is just right. Sun­beams com­ing like spot­lights through the gaps bet­ween moun­tains, pain­ting dots of light on moun­tain slo­pes, gla­ciers and the pen­in­su­la Grav­ne­set, lovely.

Later it is time to get the cram­pons out. The­re is this nice gla­cier in Smee­ren­burgfjord, gent­le and without crev­as­ses, easi­ly acces­si­ble, sur­roun­ded by jag­ged moun­tains, good stuff.

And it is just as good to stay at anchor, silent and calm, a fros­ty night, evening red glowing abo­ve Dans­køya in the north, the gla­cier rising to the south. Now we are curious if we get a nort­hern light tonight.
