For­landsund – 27th Sep­tem­ber 2015

A day in Lon­gye­ar­by­en, which can at least par­ti­al­ly be spent with doing not­hing, is always a good thing. So yes­ter­day we could start again with fresh moti­va­ti­on and ener­gy.

A calm day in For­landsund, with light snow­fall we walk over the coas­tal plain bet­ween Isfjord and St. Jonsfjord. Lovely coas­tal sce­ne­ry, rein­de­er ant­lers, ever­ything cove­r­ed with a thin fresh white lay­er.

The Poole­pyn­ten Swim­ming Club is some­whe­re else, but Dah­l­breen pres­ents its­elf with colours that somehow dis­play an ama­zing com­bi­na­ti­on of soft­ness and inten­si­ty. Beau­ti­ful, clear light.

Spits­ber­gen seems to switch from autumn to win­ter now. We will pro­bab­ly get qui­te a bit of wind for some days, star­ting tonight. Could be good sai­ling wind. We are qui­te curious what the upco­m­ing days will bring.

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 (3): Die Bären­in­sel und Jan May­en”, with Ger­man text Click here for fur­ther details!
