Franz Joseph Land is one of the Northernmost parts of Russia and consists of multiple islands which lay as far to the North as Northern Greenland, pretty much one of the closest lands to the North Pole. You can read more about it on Wiki here. However, what is our point of interest today is the change of seasons on Franz Joseph Land. A photographer travelled there and took a few photos in each season in exactly the same place:
