“Arctic Sky” – Black and White Limited Fine Art Photography Print (Edition 100)
The black and white fine art photography print Arctic Sky reminds for me of everything that Svalbard’s landscapes represent: rugged mountains, giant glaciers and above them a Big Sky filled with dramatic clouds.
Vast parts of the Arctic archipelago are covered under permanent ice. Gigantic glaciers have carved deep fjords into the mountains and are breaking off at the front when they advance, giving birth to icebergs of all shapes and sizes. For me Svalbard is one of the last unspoiled nature paradises on earth where the severe elements of nature have inhibited dense human population.
The island group is also a photographer’s dream, the weather changing from day to day offering a variety of moody landscapes for dramatic images. Svalbard is also one of the best places in the Arctic where one can see polar bears. The polar bear population in the Svalbard archipelago and Barents Sea is around 3,000, which exceeds the human population. In August 2015, a survey of the Norwegian subpopulation estimated almost 1000 polar bears. Of these a little less than 300 were located in Svalbard – most of them close to the ice edge.
The Arctic Sky fine art print has a limited edition of only 100. Most other fine art photographers have a much higher limited edition number. The lower the number the higher is the value of the print. Please also browse through my other limited editions Special Limited Fine Art Prints (edition of ONLY 25) and Exclusive Art Collector Prints (edition of ONLY 5).
