South Greenland islands

Flickr user Stig Nygaard posted a series of shots of the southern Greenland coastline, taken on a flight from Copenhagen to Atlanta. The first image shows the large island of Qunnerit on the right side of the photo. The low-lying areas in the center are part of Pamialluk Island, and the smaller island at left center is Nunarssuaq.

About 40 km west, this image shows a large group of low-lying islands off the southwestern Greenland coast. The largest island in this group, in the left center foreground, is Angissoq. The Tasermiut fjord leads to the upper right, and the inland ice sheet is visible at the top of the image.

This is cool! How do you find the locations? Do you know Greenland very well, or is it the hard way by "surfing" in Google Earth?

Stig - Thanks for the feedback. I have a pretty good knowledge of the geography of Greenland, combined with a bit of Google Earth surfing.
