Bellsund – 30th May 2016

From the icy Hornsund to the tundra in Bellsund. Early flowers on bedrock that is sorted in amazing structures, making Earth history visible on the mountain slopes and along the coastline. There are still last kilometres of fjord ice deep in the innermost bays. Sad reality, normally the whole fjord should still be frozen solid, but what is normal these days? Eight kilometres of ice between us and the glacier.

The polar bear that is roaming the ice near the glacier appears as a faint dot in the scope. No good for the untrained eye, but the whole scenery is nevertheless impressive.
