Mountain reflected on the sea from the vantage point of a kayak in Arctic Svalbard.

On an expedition to Arctic Svalbard, a fellow traveler and I had the opportunity to kayak in the clear water of a quiet bay. The only sounds were the ripples of our paddles, the crackling of the melting ice around us, and the distant hum of thousands of seabirds nesting on a rock face high above us.
