A world of ice

Lisbeth's job once again brought her to Greenland but since this second trip was much shorter, the camera didn't make it out of the bag until the flight leaving Greenland - this time from the international airport at Narsarsuaq in the South.

As you can see above, there is rather little snow and ice in the Southern part but before getting a chance to capture the lovely fiord scenery, the plane hit the cloud level.

However, it was worth keeping out the camera since it was an amazing 'trek' across the ice further to the East.

The clear conditions made it possible to see some of the flow patterns in the ice and above it is even possible to distinguish the ice shelf of the glacier.

Amazing, eh?!
