Hallo,from the beautiful and hot Greece.Google
Там никто не живет, что ли?
Sorry Vitaliy M, You will have to write in english/german/italian/french... I cannot read your language. Regards!
Дважды там побывал. В общей сложности пять лет.
Twice there has visited. In total five years.
There, no one lives?
They lived there until 1998, now it is a ghost town
Todo bellísimo, pero demasiado frío most of the year.
Мне очень интересно - какая температура на этом острове летом/зимой?
I'm so interested - what temperature on this island in summer/winter?
xoomer, sorry I was there as a tourist.
In summer it is around 10 °C.
There is this wonderful webcam, if you are interested.
Everything alright, Claudio. Thanks you, it's great! As I understood that's webcam isn't online now ?
Can I ask again, please... That's yellow small circle on the picture - it is polar Sun ?
Hi xoomer, the webcam is well alive, I'm seeing it now and it has the right date and time. Keep in mind that there is the polar night now up there! So even at noon there is NO sun!
Here is the address:
Then, about the polar sun...? if you are speaking of my photo, no, the sun comes from the right, as you can see from some shadows, so it will certainly not be in the photo.
finally, here is my whole collection of Svalbard photos
Hope this answers your questions!
I am watching a tv show about this place.It will probably be the last existing remains of man when we are all gone...
clyde, why? I'm just curious...
Since the region is frozen, everything is preserved-much like things in your refrigerator stay fresh.If they were not refrigerated many items would rot or decompose. The extreme cold will keep the buildings from much of the water damage that would occur in a more temperate region. Also they are not subject to freezing and thawing as much and do not go from hot to cold which causes expansion and contraction in structures.
thanks a lot clyde for the explanation!
I love this places, I left a little bit of my heart up there. Greetings from Italy
Claudio, sorry, since my last message few months ago.
I so impressed because your photos are very-very-very super! :))
Very beautiful landscape, wonderful composition, colours and reflections. Great shot! regards from Spain
Thanks Stefan, it's always a pleasure after so many years, someone like you discovering and appreciating an old low-pixel photo :-)... the place has something unique, as you can read in the other comments.
