Isfjorden toward Pyramiden / by Shaun O'Boyle

Isfjorden or Ice Fjord is the main body of water near Longyearbyen and the one we traveled on by catamaran to Pyramiden and the Nordenskiöld Glacier. Here are some landscape shots which will give an idea of the landscape in this area of Spitsbergen and the approach to Pyramiden, an abandoned Russian coal mining town. _DSC6952-1
