white nights

"White Nights " is our winning image!  This image was captured in the Svalbard archipelago located between latitudes 74 and 81 degrees North and longitudes 10 and 35 degrees East and 600 miles south of the North Pole.  The archipelago is a wild world of frozen wasteland.  It is an alien place filled with stark, white platforms adrift on a dark slick oil-like surface.  Although the foreign scenery of the arctic is harsh, there is a unique beauty in its starkness.  There is beauty in its simplicity, vastness, and color.  The ice is hard, cold, white, pale blue, deep cobalt, pink, clear and opaque.  The tundra is soft, spongy, and filled with colorful mosses, tiny flowers, bird feathers and reindeer antlers.  The water is cold, deep, dark, reflective, and filled with a multitude of strange pieces of sea ice. The white nights occur during the summers when the sun never fully sets.  It does not go further than 6 degrees below the horizon,  and the sun and sky colors are magnificently reflected by the dark waters and ice. 

Our "White Nights" is available in table top to wall size, triple matted and with or without a frame.  The matted versions are yours at a 10% discount and the framed matted versions in sizes 11x14 and larger can be yours at a 15% discount.
