Here's a series of photos from Flickr user hans solcer along the coast of East Greenland. The first shot is taken from just offshore, looking west, and shows the many fjords indenting this section of the coastline. In the center of the photo is Kap Juel (Cape Jewel), with Anarnitsoq Island to the left, and the small, low-lying island of Singiartuarfik to the right.
Slightly to the south, the next image is a close-up view of the Kapitak peninsula, with the island of Pungoq in the upper left, and the larger island of Umanaq in the upper right center.
About 20 km west, the next image shows the fjords winding around the island of Kamoen, visible at the upper left.
The next image, slightly inland, is a terrific close-up view of the terminal edge of the Guldfaxe glacier, as it enters the Sehested fjord. The intricate folded texture of the glacier's surface can be seen clearly. Compare the shape and position of the ice edge to the image from Google Earth, which it matches almost exactly. The glacier is about 2,800 meters wide at its terminus.
Just west of the Guldfaxe glacer edge, this image shows a snow-covered mountain valley near the Rorik Bjerg nunatak.
Moving further inland, the next few images show views of the upper reaches of the Rimfaxe glacier. In this shot, the Rimfaxe runs from left to right through the center of the photo, with a portion of the Guldfaxe visible along the bottom of the image (the two glaciers join just out of frame to the right).
Here's a wider view of the mountains north of the Rimfaxe, which runs along the bottom of the image.
A closer look at a smaller glacier entering the northern edge of the Rimfaxe.
The final image is a shot of more distant mountains to the north, leading to the upper reaches of the Thrym Glacier near the center of the image.
