Life at sea...
by an endless horizon, we navigate into the infinite beauty, where
further adventures await and new experiences are created.
After many weeks spent surveying in pelagic waters, the mountainous landscape of Svalbard is an exciting sight.
Whether out at sea or on land, a curious and observant eye is the key for spotting wildlife. Even the biggest creatures appear small in their vast environments. Do you spot the polar bear in the next pictures?
The bear seems to be dreaming of walrus for dinner, but after a couple of shy hunt tries, it continues its long distance walk.
Almost two months have past since the Barents Sea survey started in early June. August is already here with new ventures ahead.
Thanks so much to all my friends and colleagues at the Institute of Marine Research (IMR) for a great summer in the Arctic!
