Adventdalen total solar eclipse March 20 2015

Adventdalen is a huge barren valley outside the northernmost city on planet Earth Longyearbyen. It is completely dark almost 4 months each year and covered by ice. Being there for the total solar eclipse felt like travelling out of time and place. I wanted to convey this feeling of estrangement.
