Ingingaleq Island, East Greenland

Here's another series of images from Flickr user ascendent, who frequently flies over Greenland. The first image shows Ingingaleq Island in East Greenland in the foreground, about 35 kilometers east of the town of Angmagssalik. In the upper right is Erqiligarteq Island. Note the large flat ice floes floating in the water, along with the many smaller icebergs.

East Greenland glacier

Next we have an excellent view of an East Greenland glacier. This glacier is actually a tributary glacier, flowing into the larger Kangerlussuaq Gletscher which is just barely visible at the bottom of the frame, flowing from right to left.

Siggut Point, West Greenland

The final image shows the watery landscape of the West Greenland coastal plains, which are cut with many meandering fjords. The thin point of land here is called Siggut Point, lying in the southern portion of Nuersorfik Bay.
