East Greenland mountains

Flickr user ascendent produces a steady stream of dramatic Greenland aerial photos. This set comes from the northern East Greenland, near Cape Brewster. The mountains in this area display sharp horizontal striations and vertical ridges, creating a distinctive visual texture that is not seen in other parts of Greenland. The first image shows a wide shot of the mountain ranges alongside the upper portions of the Christian IV Glacier.

 

The ridge that is second-closest to the foreground in the image above is the same one as seen in the foreground of the image below, taken by Flickr user coastal eddy about two months earlier.

The next image provides a closeup view of a line of nunataks, looking south in an area known as the Lindberghs Fjelde (Fjelde = Field, as in field of nunataks).

The final image, looking north, gives a closeup view of an isolated nunatak in the Lindberghs Fjelde. Note the well-defined horizontal bands, the bowl-shaped ampitheater, and the serrated profile of the knife-edge ridge as revealed by the shadow of the mountain. The bowl-shaped depression is about 750 meters across.
