Svalbard Winter Expedition Complete – Australia Bound…

We have just docked back in Longyearbyen from our Svalbard Winter expedition (full trip report on my return to Australia). We had some absolutely incredible Winter landscapes – frozen fjords, stunning sea ice and some pretty remarkable Polar Bear behaviour. Also, Arctic Fox, Reindeer and Walrus on Ice! My sincere thanks to all who participated and braved the extremes of the Arctic Winter. Our coldest day was -29.5C with 25 knots of wind (just south of -50 Celsius and the coldest temperature I have ever photographed in) and temps generally south of -20C with many days of -25C and below. Starting the long trek home to Australia now…Looking forward to a pair of shorts and a t-shirt for at least a little while…
