Icy Shore

The rocky coast of Adentfjorden on Svalbard has been covered by ice from tide and wave motion in conjunction with the freezing temperatures during the polar night. Now it’s February and the light has started to come back in the high arctic. The returning light has a special ethereal feel with an extra pastel touch. The polar winter shows its majestic beauty.
