Alkefjellet, Spitsbergen, Svalbard

A thick-billed murre takes off down the Arctic runway! Wings beating furiously, the murre appears to “run on the water” for several meters before taking to the air. Photographed in front of the giant bird cliffs at Alkefjellet on the eastern coast of Spitsbergen.
