Reflections of Greenland
In 1822 Whitby whaling captain William Scoresby of Whitby was the first European to map the area of east Greenland that was to become known as Scoresby Sound. Fast forward two hundred years and in the late summer of 2018, I achieved my dream of travelling in the wake of William Scoresby. Sailing around the fjords of Scoresby Sound on a 100-year-old Danish sailing ship the Donna Wood.
Greenland is a country of beauty beyond words, it’s like staring into soul of the earth. For me, nothing illustrates this better than the sight of icebergs reflected in the mirror calm waters of Rode Fjord. So this gallery contains a selection of my favourite images from this adventure.
Reflecting on Greenland
Greenland, a land of icebergs and Inuit’s. Conventional wisdom says Greenland is only visited by intrepid explorers’ like Amundson and a few hardy trekkers who come in the summer, but ordinary people like us just don’t go to Greenland in the winter. Well they do now!
Greenland in winter is a land of indescribable beauty, where icebergs of un-imaginable size are born. Capturing this beauty on camera proved to be a major challenge, especially as they were experiencing unseasonably cold conditions during our visit, but a challenge we relished.
