Southwest Greenland

Here's a pair of images of South Greenland from Flickr user sbv033. The first image shows the southern edge of the inland ice sheet. A pair of glaciers reach from the edge of the ice sheet at the left, surrounding the barbell-shaped landmass and flowing into the ice-choked Eqalorutsit Kitdlît Sermiat fjord.

The next image shows us the low-lying island of Nunarssuit in Greenland's southwestern corner. This image is hard to match with the Google Earth screenshot at right. The match is obscured by the blurry, low-resolution imagery in the foreground, and the cloud-covered area beyond. However, compare to the image below, and note the correspondence of the distant islands and the shapes of the bays along the channel that runs through the center of the image above and the middle foreground of the image below.
