For­landsund – 31st May 2016

Why can’t I just stay and put up my tent in this land­s­cape here, north of Isfjord? Spend a week or more? Wide tun­dra with litt­le hills and lakes, a sce­nic coast­li­ne with many litt­le rocky capes and hid­den bays. Rein­de­er so curious that it is almost dif­fi­cult to get rid of them again 🙂 Grey phalar­o­pes and Snow bun­tings, mos­ses gro­wing on ice. Can life in the arc­tic get any bet­ter?

Gal­le­ry For­landsund – 31st May 2016

Click on thumb­nail to open an enlar­ged ver­si­on of the spe­ci­fic pho­to.

Yes, it can. Thanks to the wal­rus­ses on Prins Karls For­land. They were not just curious, they were almost obtru­si­ve. We show­ed our appre­cia­ti­on by clea­ning a good bit of strand from plastic rub­bish, that is lit­te­ring the shore­li­nes in sca­ry amounts, as in most parts of the world’s oce­ans today.

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!
