Imaggeo On Monday: Konsfjorden and Kronebreen glacier

Taken shortly after our departure from Ny-Ålesund after our first “Lost Meteorites” field trial in Greenland testing new equipment that can be used to discover ‘missing’ iron meteorites in Antarctica, the return flight gave incredible views of the surrounding landscape. This photo was taken looking down to the icy waters of Kongsfjorden on the west coast of Svalbard and the Kronebreen glacier behind, with, in the distance, the peaks of the Tre Kroner mountain.
