This set of photos from Flickr user bopl_enroute cuts across the southern portion of Greenland, about 220 km north of the southern tip. The first photo looks south across Greenland's interior icecap, showing several nunataks protruding from the ice in foreground, and larger mountains in the background. The east coast of Greenland is on the right.
The next photo, about 260 km west, shows a close-up view of the glacier at the head of the Sermilik Fjord in West Greenland. Note the position of the ice front as compared to the Google Earth image at right; the position is very similar, showing little or no evidence of retreat.
The next image shows the coast of West Greenland. To the upper right are clouds spilling in from the sea. At left-center is the mouth of the Sermilik Fjord (seen in the previous image), while in the left foreground is the Kangerdluarssuk Fjord.
The final image, slightly further west, again shows the West Greenland coastline, with the island of Iguassuaq in the foreground, partially obscured by clouds.
