[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Longyearbyen, a desolate Norwegian village on the archipelago of Svalbard, has doesn't just depend on 24 hours of daylight to know that it's summer. Look closely at this mountaintop just outside the city. Can you spot the wineglass of snow at 1 o'clock in the frame? When the wineglass appears, it's summer in Longyearbyen. But the wineglass doesn't last long. Within four to five months, snow will once again cover the mountainside and the locals will live in darkness again.

Longyearbyen is the governmental center of Svalbard. One of the world's northernmost towns, it lies on the island of Spitsbergen, the largest island of Svalbard. It's 2500+ residents rely on coal mining.
