Virgo­ham­na – 19th Sep­tem­ber 2016

The air pres­su­re dyna­mics have been qui­te spec­ta­cu­lar in recent days. A pres­su­re loss of more than 30 hec­to­pas­cal wit­hin 48 hours is not bad at all. The same goes for the incre­a­se of 16 hPa in the last 12 hours.

Virgo­ham­na is a good place on such a day. It does not mat­ter if you can’t see far. Ever­ything (well, most of) what you want to see is clo­se. Both the rus­ty remains of Andrée’s and Wellman’s expe­di­ti­ons and the har­bour seals, which were in gre­at shape on this grey Mon­day morning.

The dead sperm wha­le that we had recent­ly seen was gone, unfor­tu­n­a­te­ly. Too bad, it would have been too nice. On the other hand, we wouldn’t have been able to see a lot in the sno­wy wea­ther any­way.

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!
