Søndre Sermilik fjord, South Greenland

Flickr user paul@stinkwater posted this dramatic image of the mountains and fjords of South Greenland. On the left is the Søndre Sermilik fjord, divided into many branching arms by several thin islands and peninsulas. On the right is the Tasermiut fjord. Both of these fjords are fed by relatively small glaciers, which is why the water is relatively open, in contrast to the ice-choked fjords seen in some other parts of Greenland. The southernmost tip of Greenland's inland ice sheet is also visible in the upper right.


This location has been photographed by several other Flickr users. See the three shots below, which show several other perspectives on the same landscape.
