Wijdefjord: Dirksodden

One of 3 Pomor huts that are still existing in Svalbard

Pomor hut at Dirks­od­den

The Pomors were peop­le from from the White Sea coast in nort­hern Rus­sia. The­se hun­ters and fishers had a lar­ge num­ber of hun­ting sta­ti­ons all around Spits­ber­gen. Almost all of them are ruins today, many hard­ly visi­ble any­mo­re, but 3 are cur­r­ent­ly still stan­ding, all of them in nort­hern Wij­defjord. One of them is this hut at Dirks­od­den. The hut has been reno­va­ted, other­wi­se it would most likely not exist any­mo­re. Some gra­ves are visi­ble south of the hut.

When I shot this pan­ora­ma, the wea­ther was so bad that it was not pos­si­ble to take ano­t­her pano out­side. Next time … It was dif­fi­cult enough insi­de, whe­re it was dark and space is real­ly limi­ted.
