Plane Views Over Greenland
I've flown over Greenland several times and take photos of the island when there are breaks in the clouds. Over the years I've noticed evidence of retreating glaciers and more bare rock, especially at the fjords and valley's of the island's east coast.

Exposed Rock (E09A3821)
Light-colored rock near the end of a glacier shows how much the glacier has recently retreated.
