Working Photographer has been running silent lately because the staff in charge (me) has been preparing for travels. One leg of the trip will take me back to Svalbard where the long winter night is just about to break into perpetual sunshine. When I first visited Svalbard I had no expectations (maybe even negative expectations, actually.) Boy, was I surprised. It is a stunning place, full of the most haunting color, a land where glaciers are the natural order of things, not some exceptional curiosity.
After that I'll be heading back to Scotland with a swing through Orkney, one of my favorite island retreats. So forgive the scant pickings here at Working Photographer and I'll be back with fresh freshness as soon as possible.
