家父於去年(2016)過世因此2017並未安排任何遠程的旅遊攝影,在2018年起將恢復我每年2-3次的遠程探險旅遊攝影,首先要開始的是在北緯70度左右的挪威Lofoten極地列嶼,此次是參加由”Joseph Van Os” 的攝影團隊舉辦的探險攝影,行程是我一直非常喜歡的極地地理風貌,那是一種空曠、廣闊、線條簡單、渾然天成的自然景色,尤其是鋸齒型的峽灣和高聳的岩石山川,而在其中經常能發現美麗、色彩精緻和外型優美的花卉或植被,大多是纖細小巧的花朵,色彩繽紛引人入勝,這次要去的Lofoten島列是自然地理景觀的攝影勝地,也是北極光頻繁出現的地方。

My father passed away in last October, the year of 2017 will have no schedule for me for the long distance travel as the tradition, so the time of 2017 will be the preparation for the future tour , in the beginning of the year 2018 I will join the “Joseph Van Os” team for the expedition of the Norway’s Lofoten Islands,

挪威夏季北極生態探險歸來(Back from the Svalbard Photo Expedition summer 2016#2)

在 “2016挪威北極生態探險之旅行前” 文內提到有關此次再度前往挪威北極(Svalbard群島)的目的和想法,其中最主要的想法是根據過去兩次經驗,以一個攝影人來說參加小團體行程似較能聚焦北極生態的拍攝,因此決定首次參加由挪威當地攝影師Sevin Wik帶隊的團體,由於人數不多(10人)可搭乘小型動力帆船,優點是機動性高並且可非常靠近拍攝的目標、行程內容彈性較高,但缺點則是生活的舒適性較差,無論如何我們是以拍攝照片為主要目的,在小團體中大家相互幫助、包容也是一番新的體會,此行見識挪威人個性的嚴謹和驚人的耐力,由於我是唯一的台灣人特別能體會他們對外國人的禮貌,而非經驗裡維京人的印象,在小船上生活均採互助使拍攝活動更加靈活充實。

In the blog of ” before Svalbard Photo Expedition Summer 2016″, I mentioned the thought about the trip again to Svalbard, among them the main point is as a photographer to join the small group can more concentrate on the wildlife shooting according to the previous 2 large group cruises, so the result was to join the local photographer Sevin Wik’s group, with total 10 people cruised by a powered yacht, the advantage is we have more flexible schedules and closer to the shooting subjects, but suffering a not much comfortable living condition comparing to the large group ones, nevertheless, our purpose of the cruise is to get more interesting images of the wildlife, further more we shared a help each other mode of the stay in a small photography group, I had at the first time experiencing the character and powerful endurance of the Norwegian people, as a Taiwanese, I experienced a different style of the tough Vikings which replaced by a more polite manners to the foreign people, we enjoyed a more colorful photo shooting by sharing one another the living or photography skills during the cruise.

挪威夏季北極生態探險之旅行前(Before Svalbard Photo Expedition summer 2016#2)


 經去年再度前往挪威的北極地區Svalbard巡訪及拍攝北極生態(特別是北極熊)後(詳細請參照本站:挪威北極熊尋覓歸來噗文),感覺仍無法感受到和北極野生動物的近距離觀察及拍攝,

After the cruise of the travel to Svalbard last year for the photography of the wildlife in the Polar area (see my pose of “Come back from Svalbard”), the feeling of how to get closer to watch the Polar landscape and wildlife is getting stronger,

冰島冬季冰凍探險歸來(Come back from Iceland the frozen north)

前篇已說到此行前對冰島的一些印象及親身經歷,對冰島這個面積有3個台灣大人口只有30多萬的國家其實和台灣有非常多相似的地方,都是沒有豐富資源面積不大的地方,但是人民都是非常努力工作自力自強,但除此之外冰島卻有著我們沒有的美麗無比的景色,不論夏冬都呈現不同的風貌,冰島是歐洲大陸地形隆起的尖端部份,整個島是一座火山地貌,蘊藏豐富的地熱能源,因此鋁業成為冰島的重要外銷產業,冰島在不同季節都能呈現迷人的美麗景觀,特別是日出日落的大自然色彩和情境,經歷2008年的金融危機後這次再訪冰島,感受到他們已從困境中站起來,市面上到處可見的建築工事和擁擠的觀光客,在在顯示冰島已漸回復往日的繁華 。

The last blog on Jan.16,2016 has mentioned some impression and experience on the travel of Iceland, with this country which is 3 times bigger in area but the population are only 1.3% as Taiwan of 300 thousands, there are some similar faces with both of us, those are we don’t have enough resource and people work hard for their lives, but Iceland owns gorgeous landscape except, there are totally different faces of the landscape no matter in summer and winter in Iceland, Iceland is at the ridge of the European continent, the whole island is a volcano terrain, which rich in the underground heat, so the aluminum industry become one of their exports, there are unique view in the different seasons in Iceland specially the mood of colorful sunrise and sunset, this time I have seen the growth and come out of the financial dilemma since 2008 by busy constructions everywhere in Iceland, that I can see their past glory is coming back.

冰島冬季冰凍探險行前(Before Iceland the frozen north expedition)

地處北極圈的冰島對我們生活在台灣的人來說的確是個遙遠的地方,我第一次前去是在2008年夏天七月中左右,首次的冰島行是非常好奇和期待

挪威北極熊尋覓歸來 / Come back from Svalbard

 

前一篇講到北緯78°的挪威Svalbard群島是一個景色優美自然生態豐富的地區,包括北極生物之王-北極熊、海豹、海象、馴鹿、狐狸、善知鳥、北極燕、海鳩、賊鷗、三趾鷗等,及一些植被、花草都是僅有的特殊景象,對挪威的北極地區有了些簡單的了解,在今年7月親身逛了趟後有了更進一步的感受。

I have been in Svalbard last year joined the Aurora Expedition’s Arctic cruise, started from Iceland through Greenland ended in Sptisbergen, it was a successful experience on the Arctic world, its wild life、landscape、floras etc. were very much impressed, but the pity was haven’t met the king of the wild life – polar bear.
