Caption: The moon lights the frozen landscape behind the camp of a survey party on Spitsbergen, the Norwegian island in the Svalbard Archipelago on the edge of the Arctic Ocean. The pyramid tents, lit from inside by tilly lamps, are ideally suited to extreme conditions in polar regions, being able to withstand winds of up to 185 kilometres per hour. The camp was part of a seismic survey for an oil company in 1986.
