About Spitsbergen

Spitsbergen is the largest island of the Svalbard archipelago, part of Norway, in the Arctic Ocean and is 700 miles from the North Pole. It is small, with an area of only 15,075 square miles. Spitsbergen’s many fjords are flanked by mountains that rise out of the ocean to over 5,000 feet in elevation. Longyearbyen (population 2, 552) is a small coal-mining town on Spitsbergen and is known for its views of the Northern lights. Spitsbergen has become very popular for cruises on small expedition ships to photograph polar bears and other wildlife, which is how I happened to be there.

The Fine Art of Spitsbergen

When I was on an expedition vessel photographing polar bears and other wildlife, I was impressed by the rugged snow-covered mountains and glaciers that lined the Norwegian fjords. There were mountains that were inviting with blue skies and wispy clouds and there were mountains that were stark and desolate. Any of them would make for an excellent Fine Art Print.

Visiting and Photographing Spitsbergen and Svalbard

We were there to photograph the Polar Bears of the region. What I did not expect to see were the magnificent snow-covered mountains of Norway. There was a feeling of desolation as there were not any villages or other signs of people. However, with the soft light, the resulting photographs were captivating.

Spitsbergen is the largest and only permanently populated island of the Svalbard archipelago in northern Norway. Although the island is over 14,000 square miles, the population is under 3.000, with most of that in the city of Longyearbyen.

For Landscape and Nature Photography, the early summer is the time to be there. Located above the 80th parallel, the summer sun never sets but is always low in the sky resulting in beautiful, soft light on all of the mountains. The mountains rise and descend straight into the North Atlantic. In addition to the mountains of Spitsbergen, see our gallery of Fine Art Mountain Photography.
