Mouth of the Kangerdlugssuaq Fjord, East Greenland

This image from Flickr user Fluffy Dragon shows the mouth of the massive Kangerdlugssuaq Fjord in East Greenland. This fjord stretches over 40 miles long, and is over six miles wide at its widest point. It is fed by at least 16 different glaciers, and therefore often contains large quantities of ice, as can be seen in this photo, especially in the high-resolution version. Note in particular the accumulation of icebergs in the bays in the foreground. The glacier feeding into the fjord from just above center is the Frederiksborg Glacier.
