14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
On top of the world

Longyearbyen (78°13'23.42"N) is one of the northernmost cities on Earth. It is totally dark 4 months a year and totally lit another 4 and always cold. My photo was taken outside the house of my scientist friends Hela and Martin during sunrise and beyond depicting the beauty of life in the Arctic.
