July 29, Mushamma, N79°40' W11°9'
Can you see the polar bear in this picture?
How about now?
This is a severely cropped version of the first picture - an example of why my 105mm lens didn't cut it. At least I had lots of resolution, so cropping wasn't a total waste.
We continued on to Mushamma, a site containing a large hunter's cabin. One can apply to stay here for a year, with applications approved by the Governor of Svalbard.
Can you see the Arctic Tern chick and its mom in this picture?
It's not much better in this blow-up
July 29, Monacobreen, N79°31' W12°31'
Next it was on to the glacier Monacobreen, which we explored by Zodiac. It's named after Prince Albert I of Monaco, one of the founders of the study of ocenaography.
