18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
High Seas

Svalbard. We left Longyearbyen on the M/S Origo on March 15 in the middle of a snow storm and headed North along the the western coast of Svalbard. The landscape was breathtaking. Towards the middle of the trip we the sea turned pretty rough. I was faced with a choice; staying inside and getting miserably seasick or going out on the bridge and taking photos. I chose the latter.
