Paulsens Fjord, East Greenland
This series of images from Flickr user Matt [the esotericintrovert] provides a look at the coast of East Greenland north of Cape Gustav Holm. The first image shows a view of the coastline, illuminated by a low sun from the southwest. In the foreground is the sea, mostly frozen, but with patches of open water. The point of land in the lower left is Cape Jorgensen; the inlet in the center is the mouth of the Kialernup Kangerlua fjord.
This image is slightly south of the previous image. Cape Jorgensen is now just below and left of center. The dark patch of water to the right of Cape Jorgensen is Poulsens Fjord.
Here's a closeup of Poulsens Fjord (right center). We still see open water in the fjord, even though the sea offshore is mostly frozen - I believe this is due to tidal action within the fjord breaking up the ice.
