Geikie Plateau, East Greenland

Flickr user heidikira snapped an excellent pair of high-resolution images over the Geikie Plateau in East Greenland. The images provide a great view of the glaciers, heavy snow cover, and distinctive mountain textures in this region. The first image shows several large glaciers in the foreground, with the ice-covered Geikie Plateau above. In the background, the waters of Scoresby Sund, the world's largest fjord, are visible.
