Sermiligaq 04

Greenland

The flight up from Kulusuk without a doubt provided the most amazing views that I have ever seen from the air anywhere in the world. For two hours we were treated to views of unbelievably spectacular scenery from rugged mountains, massive glaciers and fjords, to the incredible colours and landscapes of the arctic tundra. We were blessed with perfect weather on the day of our flight (not always the case in this part of the world) and our pilot flew up the fjords below the mountain peaks for the first 20 minutes of our flight to give us some close-up views of the glaciers and ice flows. (I was fortunate to also have a clean window, so the quality of these shots came out reasonably well). This shot is of the Karale glacier which feeds into the north-west branch of the fjord of the Sermiligaq fjord.
