Flying Over Greenland
On a clear day, flying over Greenland is astounding. My spouse took a couple of these photos as he had the window seat, but then I got my better camera and took a few more.
It is easy to know when you are flying over mountains that they are mountains - but was that a frozen river?
I wondered how thick the snow and ice is. The mountains led me to believe that this was not yet the huge glacier that covers so much of Greenland.
Although there are parts of Greenland along the coast that are inhabited, this looked quite inhospitable - but magnificent nonetheless.
Even from this height it was possible to see the patterns created in the ice and snow. An awe inspiring sight.
