White and green
This pair of snow-covered shots by Flickr user Ibgap shows the variety of landscapes in this part of East Greenland, and the frozen waters of the world's longest fjord. The first image shows Nordost Bay (center), the northernmost portion of the massive Hall Bredning inlet, north of Cape Brewster. The flat, almost featureless snow-covered land of Jameson Land on the right contrasts with the soaring mountains of the Stauning Alps in Scoresby Land, at left. The frozen waters of the bay, in the foreground, are interrupted by small islands and icebergs.
Just west of the previous image, this shot shows the frozen waters of Nordvestfjord on the left. This fjord, the longest on earth, snakes inland toward the upper left another 90 miles from the location of this shot, while the wider portion of Hall Bredning and Scoresby Sund extends back another 120 miles, meeting the sea at Cape Brewster.
