Each day following cargo operations the Aurora departs Kista Straight, which is next to the station and in close proximity to neighbouring islands, and heads out to open waters. We’re lucky in that every night of clear skies, we’re treated to fantastic ‘berg cruising followed by incredible sunsets over the plateau.

Due to the limited bandwidth aboard the ship, the file sizes need to be very small when uploading a picture, but rest assured I’ve been taking many hi-res photos off the back of the ship each evening.
