Autumn in Longyearbyen


It is rare that there is no snow in the end of September. The picture was shot September 24, 2011, on the way up to Platåfjellet. Longyearbyen lay next the bay of Adventfjorden, a branch of Isfjorden.

Longyearbyen seen from the underside of the Taubanesentral

Ropeways from three different mines were gathered in Taubenesentralen (the ropeway center). From here the coal was passed on via another ropeway to the coal harbour on Hotellneset where it was stored until shipping season started. The central was finished in 1957 and in 1987 trucks took over the transport.
