Midnight Sun and Polar Night.
The reason why we’re not planning on doing the expedition in the middle of winter in Svalbard is because of the seasonal rhythm of the sun. Svalbard is located so far North that between the end of October and middle of February, the sun is below the horizon. Right now it’s still pretty dark in Longyearbyen but the light is slowly making an appearance!
Between late march and April the duration of the sun above the horizon is changing extremely quickly, and by April 20th it’s finally daylight 24H a day. So during our expedition we’ll have very short dark nights at the beginning, and quickly no dark nights any more. This is ideal for ski touring, identifying obstacles and hazards, and of course polar bears!
She is free in her wildness, she is a wanderess, a drop of free water. She knows nothing of borders and cares nothing for rules or customs. Time, for her, isn’t something to fight against. Her life flows clean, with passion, like crisp air or fresh water.
Radiatus clouds + 22 degree halo + lighthouse = epic cloud spot!! ☁️🔎 This is Jesse anytime there’s a bit of high cloud in the sky! Always searching for that elusive Circumzenithal Arc! After years of craning both our necks we are yet to spot one. But it doesn’t really matter, every sky is different and rarely does it disappoint! Like this one, absolutely spectacular!! Today on Three Hummock Island, we have a clear, blue sky with excellent visibility and not a cloud in sight. Heat haze ripples disturbance on the horizon and the animals seem to swelter in the heat, or maybe that’s just Jesse! 😆 Total fire ban out there day today! .
