Iceland and Greenland
Here's a series of images from Flickr user bitblue from a flight passing over Iceland and Greenland. The first image comes from Iceland, showing the upper reaches of the Breidamerkuljökull, the largest glacier flowing from Iceland's Vatnajökull ice sheet. The portion of the glacier seen here is about 5.5 km wide. At left-center is the large Esjufjöll nunatak, with a very dark medial moraine leading to the bottom of the image.
1,000 km west, across the Denmark Strait, we have this image from the coastline of East Greenland. Islands seen here include Imilik (foreground), Erqiligarteq (left-center), and Nuniarqat (upper right).
Here's another view of Erqiligarteq Island, taken from the other side of the island in 2004 by Flickr user ascendent (Erqiligarteq is in the upper right).
About 200 km further west, the next image shows a portion of the iceberg-filled Kjoge Bay in East Greenland. A small glacier in the upper right flows into Uvkusigssaqarfik Fjord, generating the icebergs seen here. In the foreground is Romer Island; at left-center is the Pamiagdlik Peninsula.
The final image takes us another 500 km southwest, across Greenland's inland icecap, to this view of the West Greenland coastline. The large bay near the center of the image is Taseq Bay, connecting through a narrow channel to the Savssarssuit Inlet in the upper left.
