Southeast Greenland coastline

The coast of southeast Greenland is marked by a series of long, straight parallel fjords, and sharp capes between them. This image, by Flickr user matt707, shows a view of the coastline from just offshore. At the center of the photo is the cape known as Qasingortoq, bounded above (to the north) by Danell Fjord, and below by the fjord called Patussoq. The central portions of these coastal peninsulas are covered with permanent icecaps. The margins near the water are free from ice in the warmer months, but are snow-covered here in this image, taken in April 2004.


Compare the image above with the one below, taken about two years later, showing the same scene from a slightly different angle.
