East Greenland coastline
Here's a dramatic series of images from Flickr user AlexEdg showing the coast of East Greenland. The first image is taken from just offshore, and shows the complex coastline around the mouth of the Timmiarmiut Fjord. The large glacier just above left-center is the Heimdal Glacier; it measures almost three kilometers across. In the left foreground is the island of Igdlorssuartalik, and in the right foreground is the island of Auluik.
Immediately south of the previous image, this shot shows the island of Uttorsiutit, surrounded by icebergs.
About 17 kilometers southwest, this image shows the snow-covered mountains surrounding the Mogens Heinesen Fjord (at left). It too is dotted with icebergs and sea ice.
For the final image, we travel a further 45 kilometers southwest, to the edge of Greenland's inland icecap, where these nunataks protrude from the surrounding ice, casting sharp shadows which dramatically reveal their jagged profiles.
Here's another view of the same nunatak range, taken by Flickr user robtcobb in November 2005. In this image, the nunatak range appears in the foreground, viewed from the reverse angle.
