Ny Alessund - Spitsbergen

By fotosphere  
Just 600 miles south of the North Pole, the rugged but spectacularly scenic island of Spitsbergen is civilisations most northerly outpost and Ny Alesund is the most northerly settlement on it. Although about two-thirds of Spitsbergen and the handful of smaller, neighbouring islands that make up Norways Svalbard territory, are covered in glaciers, the Atlantic Gulf Stream which passes to the west has ensured a rich variety of plants, flowers and birds.

A quite remarkable photographic insight into your travels, and the bleakness of this rather tranquil and somewhat insular environment.
