Photo Details

  • Title: The Polar Night
  • State/Province/Region:
  • Country: Norway
  • Description: The sun is not seen for months during Winter on Svalbard. The illumination from the full moon provides a rare opportunity for landscape photography during this time. I spent 2 hours in -20ÂșC temperatures to find the perfect composition and to wait for the moon to move into position to take this picture which I think really captures the spirit of the Arctic. So harsh but so beautiful. I especially like how the moonlight catches the snow being whipped up by the wind on the side of the mountain.
