Blacker Than Black

Ice?  Scree?  Rock?  Black hills interupt the glacial white in St Johnsfjorden / Prins Karls Forland in Svalbard

I love photographs that you don’t understand immediately. Ice? Scree? Rock? Where are we? St Johnsfjorden / Prins Karls Forland in Svalbard. So what? Deception Island in Antarctica looks a dull grey but is ice govered in dust. This is a rock, isn’t it? Fully? That’s the nice thing about ambiguity… it makes you want to get off the boat and *know* what it is, with your boots whacking the floor and textures giving way.

The wisps of gorgeous orange light I like, but it’s the wisps of dark that fascinate me.
