Svalbard reflections

One of the most beautiful landscapes I've seen on the Svalbard. Here we were very close to the northernmost point we've reached during our cruise on the board of an icebreaker. In this moment we must have been over the 81° parallel, which means very far in the north. The captain said this was the only day in the whole summer season in which the vessel could reach a point so far in the north, so we were quite lucky.
