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.
The next image shows the head of the Pukugkat Kangertivat fjord in East Greenland. The glacier feeding into this fjord has retreated about 1.5 kilometers from its position in the Google Earth photo.
The next image takes us to the coast of West Greenland, with a view of the mountains and many islands along the coastline. In the foreground is the mouth of the Kangerdluarssuk fjord.
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.
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.
