Champ Island is an island in the central area of Franz Josef Land. The island is known by stone spheres littered everywhere. The sizes of the stones vary - some are small, some are up to 3m in diameter! The Franz Josef Archipelago, is a part of the national park “Russian Arctic” #arctic #expedition #adventure #stone #geology #navigation #arcticocean #icebreaker #glacier #nuclearicebreaker #cruise #travel #rosatomflot #russianarctic #russianarcticnationalpark #poseidonexpeditions #restore_mobile_awards18 #justgoshoot #discoverearth #instagoodmyphoto #theoutbound #nationalpark #photography #sky #nature

LOOK! It’s Yipski written in the snow at 90°N, the Geographic North Pole! Back in 2013, @yipity and I went to #Svalbard and met @laurenexplores, who was a crew member on the expedition Photographer Lauren and geologist Alex have just completed 2 months working as expedition staff on board nuclear-powered icebreaker #50letPobedy Their aim with this citizen science project is to prove that we can be more than just visitors to the most remote and fragile environments of our earth. With their extended access to these areas, they are in a position to collect and deliver extensive sea ice data to institutes and organisations who desperately seek it. Rapidly melting sea ice is not only an indicator of climate change but has potentially disastrous effects for polar bears and other creatures who make their home in the ice. The sea ice is as important to the health of the Arctic Ocean ecosystem as trees are to a rainforest. During this period, they were able to learn from and involve their ship's officers, partnered with rangers from the #RussianArcticNationalPark and had 36 guests (13 nationalities ranging from age 8 to 75) who regularly participated in collecting data from the bridge of the ship (78 observations in total) and down on the ice at the North Pole. Read all about this amazing project on their blog: http://www.polarcollective.org/blog Thank you Lauren for my photo! #Arctic #NorthPole #snow #ice #PolarIce #PolarSea #90degreesNorth #ArcticOcean

SUNDAY EXPRESS NEWS October 15, 2017 EXCLUSIVE By Paula Murray Polar quest plans to uncover Scots wreck EXPEDITION: The Eira crew, including Leigh Smith, second from left, with Conan Doyle, third from left, on board the vessel in 1880 HUNT: Milko Vuille will search for the wreck of the ship owned by Leigh Smith, left A POLAR explorer is heading to the Arctic next summer to confirm an “object” found in a northern archipelago is the wreck of Scots expedition yacht, the Eira. Milko Vuille will be part of an international group set up by the Russian Arctic National Park to inspect the site and is “pretty certain” the search will discover the Aberdeenshire-built vessel, commissioned and paid for by Benjamin Leigh Smith. The pioneer of Arctic exploration had used his expertise to have a ship built to endure hazardous conditions around the North Pole. His first trip to the Russian archipelago of 191 islands, known as Franz Josef Land, in 1880 was successful but disaster struck when he returned to the area the next summer. The Eira was crushed between two icebergs, leaving Leigh Smith and his crew of 25 men – plus the ship dog, Bob – stranded. They had not expected to stay for longer than a few weeks and were not equipped for the harsh Arctic winter but survived 10 long months using provisions salvaged from the vessel. Eventually they risked using four of the Eira’s lifeboats to row to safety but endured a three-week journey in terrible storms before they met ships – including The Hope, where author Arthur Conan Doyle served as surgeon in 1880 – sent to look for them off the coast of Nova Zemlya, in the far northeast of Europe. Despite losing his ship, Leigh Smith, whose niece was Florence Nightingale, made valuable contributions to research in terms of observing flora, fauna and minerals in the area, and expressing global warming concerns. He was also the first man to map many of the archipelago’s islands. #benjaminleighsmith #arctic #explorer #eira #ship #capeflora #franzjoseflandarchipelago #russianarcticnationalpark #polar #history

Swirling beauty ❄️ A piece of the glacier now floats free to start life as an iceberg in the Russian Arctic National park of Franz Josef Land. Behind is the glacier front itself; we zodiac-cruised this incredible area at 'Vosyemdesyat odin' at Ziegler Island, amongst some of the most beautiful ice we'd seen in this archipelago. A polar bear had "interrupted" 😊 our landing plans, but we had such stunning light and so many glaciers to marvel at 🖤 ❄️❄️❄️The stripes which give this iceberg and its glacier such a nice aesthetic are caused by layers of snow and ice - the more compressed ice appears more blue (it has less air bubbles, so less light is scattered, more red light is absorbed and hence the blue light is reflected back to our eyes...). In a glacier, these blue streaks are caused by a layer melting during the summer and then re-freezing into ice, with fresh snow then falling and lying on top and forming the patterns. Glaciers move in different ways, so the swirls can be different in direction and shape. Some sediment is collected along the way, adding in the black/dark streaks. The iceberg may spend many, many years in the ocean, perhaps becoming more blue as it's compressed under the water ❄️❄️❄️ @poseidonexpeditions . . . #glaciers #ice #iceberg #icebergs #franzjoseflandarchipelago #80degreesnorth #russianarcticnationalpark #Russia #russianarctic #incredibleplaces #natureperfection #naturephotography #polar #polarcircle #nature_perfection #naturelovers #natureshots #nature_photo #poseidonexpeditions

#OTD : 138 years ago, 21 August 1881, the Eira sink in few hours BENJAMIN LEIGH-SMITH ARCTIC EXPLORER Ben’s maritime and overland discoveries as well as his observations on the local flora, fauna and minerals were universally acclaimed by the World’s leading scientists and brought him many decorations for his work. By way of Royal recognition Cape Leigh-Smith was named after him as well as much of Spitzbergen and Franz-Joseph Land after his family and crew. On the 14th of June 1881 he sails with 25 crew, a cat, a canary and Bob the dog who was to prove invaluable to the expedition. His goal: the discovery of new territories North of those discovered in 1880, as well as a study of the deep sea currents and their influence and more especially the Gulf Stream. On the 21st of August 1881, on a magnificent sunny day their ship is crushed between two icebergs off Franz-Joseph land. Luckily the crew are able to salvage much of the stores and equipment before the EIRA goes down. The men knew they would be prisoners of the ice for many months. #benjaminleighsmith #crew #arctic #explorers #northpole #ship #eira #capeflora #1881 #shipwreck #franzjoseflandarchipelago #russianarcticnationalpark #expedition #nature #discovery #history #polar #exploration

Good morning walrus! 80o41’N. Odobenus rosmarus, ‘the tooth walker’, walrus is from the Old Norsk ‘whale horse’. Cinnamon to brownish-red colour when on land or ice, they vasodilate to thermal regulate, ghostly grey when in water. #RussianArcticNationalPark #FranzJosefLand 🌐💙

Can you guess where this photo was taken? This sea star looks like it lives somewhere warm, but it was actually spotted in the icy waters of the Arctic Ocean on our expedition to Franz Josef Land in 2013. Sea stars are a keystone species that regulate the populations of animals like mussels and sea urchins. In 2016, the Russian government protected Franz Josef Land through the expansion of the Russian Arctic National Park - an important commitment to protect biodiversity. | Photo by @enricsala @russian_geographical_society #RussianArcticNationalPark #Arctic #FranzJosef #CampaignForNature

‘Hold still. Stay there. Tease back the layers. You are in the space between your comfort zone and infinity. You want to hide. Not be seen. Not be open. Not be vulnerable. But you have to. There are two ways to do this – soft and gentle or fast and hard. Both will get you to the other side, if you let them’ – Jeanette LeBlan #kizhi #karjala

Cape Flora, June 1882, diary of Benjamin Leigh-Smith June 1st.- Water about five miles off running east and west, and at least 10 miles broad. Burning all the wood we can get out of the hut. 3rd.- Got a brent goose about two weeks’ fresh meat left. 4th.- Killed 100 looms, fired thirty-one shots only. 5th.- Captain Lofley says we could launch the boats across the ice into the water in three days, so I have sent some men away to find a road, but I do not believe it can be done. Men came back late at night, but did not get to the water. 6th.- Captain Lofley went to look for a road, but found the ice too bad for dragging the boats over. More water up GuntherSound. 7th.- Valentine went to find a way to the water, but did not get to it.

Остров Галля. Мыс Тегеттхофф. Скалы «Клыки дракона» и «Сахарная голова». Почему скала называется сахарной не в курсе). А Клыки Дракона мне всегда напоминали больше плавники акул. А вообще это мыс и остров, где был открыт архипелаг Земля Франца-Иосифа. Открыла его австро-венгерская экспедиция Карла Вейпоехта и Юлиуса Пайера. Открыли случайно, так как у судна «Адмирал Тегеттхофф» был сломан рулевой механизм, судно было зажато во льдах и находилось в свободном дрейфе. Назвали архипелаг в честь своего императора. Открыли 30 Августа 1873 года. #тегеттхофф #арктика #земляфранцаиосифа #зфи #россия #север #севера #арктическийпейзаж #arctic #arcticlife #arcticlandscape #nort #northernlandscapes #expedition #wildartic #lanscapephotography #natgeorussia #natgeotravelerru #fjl #franzjosefland #russia #russianarctic #russianarcticnationalpark #travel #travelphoto #traveladdiction #traveladdict #travelgram

Арктический мрачняк прекрасен. Мрачные туманные фотографии арктических островов. Я сначала не очень любил все эти мрачные туманные, облачные пейзажи. Ждал всегда солнечной погоды, которая в Арктике встречается не так уж и часто. Со временем я полюбил эти мрачные туманные арктические пейзажи такими, какие они есть. В них как раз и есть вся Арктика. Суровая, спокойная, минималистичная почти монохромная.

Divers have confirmed that a shipwreck off Franz Josef Land in the Russian Arctic is that of forgotten British explorer Benjamin Leigh Smith. Discovered near Northbrook Island, where Mr Leigh Smith and his men survived 10 months of brutal cold before miraculously making it to safety, the 130-foot wooden steam yacht Eira is the northernmost shipwreck yet found. It also provides a window into climate change, as the Franz Josef Land archipelago is now free of the summertime ice floes that crushed the ship in 1881. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2018/10/27/wreck-found-near-north-pole-recalls-courageous-exploits-florence/ #benjaminleighsmith #arctic #explorer #eira #ship #wreck #capeflora #northbrook #island #franzjosefland #archipelago #russianarcticnationalpark #northpole #history #survival #polarexplorers #telegraph #news #florencenightingale #cousin

Jamais découragé? «Si, parfois. Mais un signe relance toujours ma motivation.» Comme en 2007, lorsqu’il reçoit l’appel de Christopher Leigh-Smith, petit-fils de Benjamin. «Il habitait Château-d’Œx! Nous sommes restés en contact jusqu’à son décès.» En 2015, Milko Vuille a eu la chance de participer à une expédition scientifique en terre François-Joseph. «Une expérience fantastique!» Qu’il espère réitérer l’été prochain, pour mener à bien sa mission. https://www.migrosmagazine.ch/7700054 #migrosmagazine #eira #ship #benjaminleighsmith #arctic #explorer #capeflora #franzjoseflandarchipelago #russianarcticnationalpark #scientificexpedition #neverstopexploring #northpole #history #climate #climatechange #earth #discoverearth

Benjamin Leigh Smith est un explorateur arctique britannique, né le 12 mars 1828 à Whatlington (Sussex) et mort le 4 janvier 1913 à Hampstead. Avocat, il se spécialise dans la défense des droits des femmes puis abandonne le droit pour se consacrer à l'exploration. Il effectue ainsi de 1871 à 1882 cinq grandes expéditions dans l'archipel François-Joseph et au Svalbard. Il découvre en 1872 que le Gulf Stream passe à l'ouest du Spitzberg en mer de Barentz. En 1881, il fait naufrage sur l'île Northbrook au cap Flora et doit ainsi y demeurer avec son équipage pendant dix mois. Il complète alors la carte de Julius von Payer. Les hommes parviennent à quitter l'île en chaloupe et sont secourus par Allen Young près des côtes de la Nouvelle-Zemble. Leigh Smith découvrit au Svalbard de nombreuses îles dont Brochøya et Foynøya. Il ramena de ses voyages de nombreux échantillons conservés au British Museum et au Royal Botanic Gardens. L'île Leigh-Smith de l'archipel François-Joseph, près de l'île Hooker, a été baptisée en son honneur ainsi que deux glaciers du Svalbard. Il est l'oncle de Florence Nightingale. https://fr.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benjamin_Leigh_Smith #benjaminleighsmith #arctic #explorer #capeflora #northbrookisland #franzjoseflandarchipelago #russianarcticnationalpark #videoby #milkovuillephotography

The incredible research of the EIRA and its history The EIRA is a steamship that sank in the archipelago Franz Josef Land in 1881. Its incredible adventure has been forgotten by History. This boat represents a key moment in the discovery of the Arctic, place more and more under the spotlight of the geopolitical news because of the current climate changes. This was the platform for many scientific studies and the Royal Geographical Society awarded a prize to Benjamin Leigh-Smith, one of the first to suspect the influence of ocean currents on global climate. #benjaminleighsmith #arctic #explorer #northpole #ship #eira #capeflora #1881 #shipwreck #research #scubadiving #franzjoseflandarchipelago #russianarcticnationalpark #expedition #nature #discovery #history #arthurconandoyle #sherlockholmes #amazingplace #memories #dreams #power #crowdfunding #wemakeit.com #campaign #polar #exploration #documentary #milkovuillephotography

SUNDAY EXPRESS NEWS October 15, 2017 EXCLUSIVE By Paula Murray Polar quest plans to uncover Scots wreck EXPEDITION: The Eira crew, including Leigh Smith, second from left, with Conan Doyle, third from left, on board the vessel in 1880 HUNT: Milko Vuille will search for the wreck of the ship owned by Leigh Smith, left A POLAR explorer is heading to the Arctic next summer to confirm an “object” found in a northern archipelago is the wreck of Scots expedition yacht, the Eira. Milko Vuille will be part of an international group set up by the Russian Arctic National Park to inspect the site and is “pretty certain” the search will discover the Aberdeenshire-built vessel, commissioned and paid for by Benjamin Leigh Smith. The pioneer of Arctic exploration had used his expertise to have a ship built to endure hazardous conditions around the North Pole. His first trip to the Russian archipelago of 191 islands, known as Franz Josef Land, in 1880 was successful but disaster struck when he returned to the area the next summer. The Eira was crushed between two icebergs, leaving Leigh Smith and his crew of 25 men – plus the ship dog, Bob – stranded. They had not expected to stay for longer than a few weeks and were not equipped for the harsh Arctic winter but survived 10 long months using provisions salvaged from the vessel. Eventually they risked using four of the Eira’s lifeboats to row to safety but endured a three-week journey in terrible storms before they met ships – including The Hope, where author Arthur Conan Doyle served as surgeon in 1880 – sent to look for them off the coast of Nova Zemlya, in the far northeast of Europe. Despite losing his ship, Leigh Smith, whose niece was Florence Nightingale, made valuable contributions to research in terms of observing flora, fauna and minerals in the area, and expressing global warming concerns. He was also the first man to map many of the archipelago’s islands. #benjaminleighsmith #arctic #explorer #eira #ship #capeflora #franzjoseflandarchipelago #russianarcticnationalpark

Le cap Flora se situe sur l'île Northbrook dans l'archipel François-Joseph, en Russie. Il se trouve sur une partie de l'île non recouverte de glace au sud-ouest de l'île. L'explorateur britannique Benjamin Leigh Smith fit naufrage au cap Flora en 1881. Il a également servi de camp de base à l'expédition Jackson-Harmsworth entre 1894 et 1897. À cette occasion, il fut le lieu de la rencontre fortuite entre Frederick George Jackson et Fridtjof Nansen, sur le chemin du retour de l'expédition Fram en 1896. https://fr.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cap_Flora #polar #history #benjaminleighsmith #arctic #explorer #northpole #ship #eira #capeflora #1881 #shipwreck #research #scubadiving #franzjoseflandarchipelago #russianarcticnationalpark #expedition #2015 #nature #discovery #history #amazingplace #memories #dreams #power
