Nikon D3X, 14-24mm, f/2,8, 1/125sek @ f/14, ISO 250I have never been anywhere in the world with such graphic landscape as on Spitsbergen, Svalbard. The strong mountain ridges stands in stunning contrast to the white soft snow cover. There are pictures everywhere. I believe I could almost stand still for an entire day, just shooting landscapes. The next day I could continue as the light is always changing up here, and the wind move the black and white around, changing the scene constantly.
I was lucky enough to run into a group of sled dogs resting in the blizzard. It was amazing to watch as the animals where sleeping, completely covered in an ever growing pile of snow. The next morning - only their furry necks would show.
Nikon D3X, 70-200mm, f/2,8, 1/800sek @ f/4,5, ISO 250It was not easy leaving the east coast of Spitsbergen, as this is a place not easy to reach, and it's also a really good place for Polar Bears. However, we discovered that at the time being there were several sightings of bears also on the west coast. It didn't take long before we started finding tracks. But would we find the bears?
