East Coast

Plane Views Over Greenland

I've flown over Greenland several times and take photos of the island when there are breaks in the clouds. Greenland's east coast features spectacular expanses of sea ice, glaciers, fjords and rugged mountains. From 37,000 feet, there's no sign of human activity.

Chunks of ice have calved off a glacier where it meets the sea, covering the surface of an eastern Greenland fjord.
