It was so special to share my first visit to the Illulissat Icefjord with my friend Britta, who grew up in Greenland. We walked out to the viewpoint and hiked up and down the hillsides, awed by the views of ice stretching far over the horizon. • Greenland has been in the news a lot lately, from US purchasing interest (it’s not for sale), to this summer’s extreme heat wave, to the unprecedented rate of ice loss. • As we sat with the warm summer sun heating our backs, contrasted by the cool breeze drifting off the icy water, Britta talked with me about how Greenlanders view climate change. They don’t question it, she said, because they live it. They experience it all around them. They wonder how different their home will be in upcoming years. A sobering, important reminder on a beautiful day.

☀️ ❄️ JOY ❄️ ☀️ • 250 km north of the Arctic Circle, watching icebergs flow from Sermeq Kujalleq, the most active calving glacier in the northern hemisphere.
On our last day in Greenland the fog  was so heavy you could barely see a meter away, when it cleared up a lil I went Down to the bridge and asked mum to take this pic from our cabin’s window... she reckons she did a good job 😜👌🏼

These humongous arches of Greenland are like gates to the other world, to another dimension - unknown and barely explored. __________________ Via @danielkordan #greenland #greenlandpioneer #illulissat #icefjord

Greenland’s Ilulissat Icefjord (a UNESCO heritage site) is 60 km long and is the sea mouth of Sermeq Kujalleq, one of the few glaciers through which the Greenland ice cap reaches the sea. Sermeq Kujalleq is one of the fastest and most active glaciers in the world. It annually calves over 35 km3 of ice, i.e. 10% of the production of all Greenland calf ice and more than any other glacier outside Antarctica. Studied for over 250 years, it has helped to develop our understanding of climate change and icecap glaciology. The combination of a huge ice-sheet and the dramatic sounds of a fast-moving glacial ice-stream calving into a fjord covered by icebergs makes for a dramatic and awe-inspiring natural phenomenon. . . . . . . . . . #greenland #illulissat #icefjord #climatechange #iceberg

Greenland is one of best places in the world for whale-watching. Up to 15 species of whales can be found in the waters all around Greenland. Some of these whales, including humpback, minke and fin whales, swim all the way from the Caribbean Sea to feed in Greenland's fish-rich waters in summer.  A popular area to whale-watch in Greenland is Disko Bay. Pods can be seen feeding, sprouting water, flipping tails and even waving their fins at you. But you need extraordinary luck (and patience) to see them leap out of the water.  The best way to whale-watch is take a boat out to sea with a local. They know best where to find the whales. One tip that I learnt from them is to look out for where the seagulls gather. The seagulls usually circle around the whales cos’ when the whales emerge, they push fishes up to the water surface and the seagulls can swoosh in for a feast.  It’s so exciting to whale-spot and experience such a magnificent creature gliding gracefully right next to me!  Scroll through to see the whales in action! // . . . #photography #travelphotography #naturephotography #yourshotphotographer #scenes #travelgram #olympus #microfourthirds #microfournerds #loveforphotography #greenland #grønland #greenlandsea #diskobay #baffinbay #illulissat #illimanaq #qasigiannguit #whale #whalewatch #whalespot #boats #offthebeatentrack
