East and West Greenland
Flickr user just_pix_it posted this set of images from a flight across Greenland. The series starts with a pair of images from the northern reaches of East Greenland, showing an area known as Hinks Land, named for Arthur Robert Hinks, chairman of the British Royal Geographic Society in the early 20th century.
This image presents a wider view of Hinks Land, with the Daugaard-Jensen Glacier visible in the background near the top of the image.
We now travel about 900 km west, passing over Greenland's inland icecap and reaching the western coast. In this image, we see the Upernavik Glacier in the right-center, flowing into Upernavik Fjord. In the center foreground is the frozen Lake Qajartoriaq.
Here's a closer view of the edge of the Upernavik Glacier. Note the large quantities of ice pouring into the fjord from the glacier at top-center.
The final image shows the small Taserssuatsiaq Fjord in the foreground, the island of Uilortusoq at left-center, and the Upernavik Glacier at the top.
