East Greenland coastal islands

This series of high-resolution images from Flickr user padday provides a great look at the coast of East Greenland in the winter. The first image shows some offshore islands and coastal mountains. In the left foreground, the large island under the wing is Uingaleq. Trailing off to the upper right are a series of other islands: Amangaaq, Tikivigpik, Jerno, and Quujuutilik. The smaller, white chunks in the foreground are icebergs, trapped in the frozen sea ice that surrounds most of Greenland in the winter.

Sermilik Fjord, East Greenland

This is a view of the Sermilik Fjord. This huge fjord is about ten kilometers wide in the foreground here. The fjord is choked with ice year-round, due to several large and fast-moving glaciers that calve large numbers of icebergs into the fjord. One of these glaciers, the Midgardgletscher, can be seen feeding into the head of the fjord at the upper right.
