Svalbard Return of the Light Expedition Report

April 8th - April 16th 2022

In early April 2022, I ran my Svalbard Spring Light Expedition. This was my first expedition to Svalbard since 2019 – pre-pandemic; and it was absolutely brilliant to return to this incredible archipelago. As I have written before, Winter and early Spring have become my favorite time of year to visit Svalbard. The low angle of sun, snow and ice-covered landscape draped with stunning ethereal light make for excellent photographic opportunities and unlimited potential. We certainly experienced some really incredible light and landscape during this expedition. We also had some extraordinary wildlife encounters.
