My most stunning travel - Svalbard

posted on 17th of february, 2009

A few years ago I had unique chance to travel to Svalbard, beautiful, cold island in the North. Svalbard is above the polar circle, so I had the all-round day, the whole day. I plan to put some more pictures, for now only two. Other wait for scanning.

I experienced couple of hyperactive days, nearly no sleep at all, simply there was no night. And, too much fun as well. The pictures I made from an exploration ship. You canot imagine what garment I had on myself. I looked like a polar bear at least, only orange :)

Also, look at Master Picture, from one of DT best:

Thats cold enough for me :0) Actually the batteries lasted better than I thought.

Comment by Tomdraug on February 17, 2009

It was not too cold, up to -10
I had my trusty Olympus OM-4Ti so battery was not a problem :)
In Alps, it was -20 to -25, on my Sony A700, I burned 3 lithium batteries in 5-6 hours and 300 shots. Not so bad, overall

Nice pics, and once again you managed to make me cold brrrrr...

Ps, how does the battery hold up in such cold conditions?

I was in Norway last October for vacation but I have not reached the swalbard because I was not so equipped, but I would have liked so much, then wait your photos.

About me

I am geek. At 10, I learned to shoot, probably to balance my geekness. I love manual cameras. I try to catch the mood, the light and the feeling of the place. I hope to make THE photo one day :)
