East Greenland nunataks

This highly detailed trio of shots by Flickr user Peter Howells shows great details in the nunataks of East Greenland. A nunatak is a mountain that protrudes through the ice of a glacier or icecap. East Greenland contains the greatest concentration of nunataks in Greenland, spread in fields up and down the coast. This field, just south of the massive Kangerdlussuaq fjord, is called the Crown Prince Frederick Mountains.
