Tem­pel­fjord – 02nd June 2016

Alrea­dy the last day of this trip. Unbe­liev­a­ble how quick­ly more than 1000 miles go by. The fine tun­dra on Dia­ba­sod­den – just weeks ago the sce­ne of a memo­r­able polar bear encoun­ter – is home to rather curious rein­de­er who approach us repeated­ly. That is how it should be, not the other way around Bar­na­cle geese and Brünich’s guil­lemots are sit­ting on the steep basalt cliffs, a ptar­mi­gan is on loo­kout on a rock, some­whe­re a fox is loo­king for prey.

Gal­le­ry Tem­pel­fjord – 02nd June 2016

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

Beau­ti­ful Tem­pel­fjord is the sce­ne for a final sce­nic crui­se (admit­ted­ly, we are also still loo­king for a polar bear, but whe­re­ver they cur­r­ent­ly are, we don’t know …) befo­re a last litt­le lan­ding, with sce­ne­ry, some natu­ral histo­ry and arc­tic silence, rounds the trip off.

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!
