Nor­thwest-Spits­ber­gen – 15th Sep­tem­ber 2017

A gol­den day in a clas­si­cal area. Here in Smee­ren­burgfjord, whe­re the wha­lers were suf­fe­ring from har­sh wea­ther in their thin woo­len clothes 400 years ago, we enjoy a bril­li­ant day in calm, clear and even sun­ny wea­ther. In Virgo­ham­na, we visit the place whe­re Andrée and Well­man star­ted their famous north pole expe­di­ti­ons. Har­bour seals are res­ting on rocks in a shal­low bay.

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

Much lar­ger seals are res­ting on the beach a bit fur­ther north, on Ams­ter­damøya. A who­le group of wal­rus­ses is sun­bat­hing the­re, without any respect for the his­to­ri­cal blub­ber ovns of Smee­ren­burg.

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!
