Sassendalen

360°-Panorama

Sas­send­a­len is one of Spitsbergen’s lar­gest ice-free val­leys. In the sum­mer, the wide, wet tun­dra is hard­ly acces­si­ble, and only a few well-trai­ned hikers will then ven­ture in this area, far from the coast, for exam­p­le on the way to the east coast. But in win­ter­ti­me, the­re is quite a lot of traf­fic, when this wide, flat area is used by snow mobi­le groups on the way to the east coast, to Tem­pel­fjord or Pyra­mi­den.

I shot this pan­ora­ma years ago in ear­ly April in late night hours on the way back from the east coast. It was cold and it had been a long day, but I could not resist the tempt­a­ti­on but just had to try cap­tu­re the magic of the moment, the wide-open sce­n­ery and the beau­tiful light.
