Photographer's Note

This was taken at Farmhamna, Spitsbergen at approximately 11pm. It is the end of summer, and the sun already disappears behind the horizon for a few hours. Temperature just below zero and a little wind. We are walking a mile on the grounds next to our skipper's cottage. He tells us, how he built it and how he spent a polar winter here. Of course, there was that polar bear behind the cottage one day. "I jumped up, and the bear jumped up", he said. No bears when we visited, fortunately! He wanted to take his family here for summer 2003. I am not actually sure he did. A summer in a location like this? Would you do that? Would you take your 10 year old kid there? He must be really a special person!
