Panorama: Mohnbukta, Königsbergbreen

Königsbergbreen (-glacier, left side) and Hayesbreen in Mohnbukta on the east coast of Spitsbergen, opposite Barentsøya. The landscapes in the eastern part of the Svalbard archipelago are often rather wide and open. Typical are more or less plateau-shaped mountains and dark rocks, giving the landscape a sometimes even gloomy appearance.

Many smaller icebergs with fantastic shapes and colours are frozen in the fast ice of Mohnbukta. These images were taken inside an iceberg that had several old meltwater caves. – 1/2

Die Abbruchkante des Hayesbreen auf der Nordseite der Mohnbukta liegt im Winter fast regungslos im Eis der Bucht.
