The long Arctic winter begins © Rob Watkins 2011

The first day of snowfall after the short Summer over a mountain sea lake just north of Longyearbyen. This heralds the approach of the long Arctic winter and cold light on Svalbard, also known as Spitsbergen, which is a huge collection of islands in the High Arctic under the guardianship of Norway.
