Sjuøya­ne – 22nd July 2016

We made it up to Sjuøya­ne, the Seven Islands, the nort­hern­most part of Spits­ber­gen! That is just around the cor­ner from the north pole. We could almost see it from a litt­le hill on Phipp­søya, it was just hid­den behind a cloud. But we could see that bar­ren, very cha­rac­te­ris­tic high arc­tic land­s­cape all around us.

Gal­le­ry Sjuøya­ne – 22nd July 2016

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

Some­thing else that we could see was the ter­ri­ble plastic was­te, which is drif­ting into the remo­test cor­ners of the pla­net with sea cur­r­ents. At least, the­re are now two cubic-met­re bags less of it on Phipp­søya.

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!
