Greenland: A Land of Floating Sculptures

On an amazing sailing from Nunavut, Canada to Greenland, in the Greenland fjords we sailed past endless numbers of icebergs that resembled floating sculptures. As we moved past them the shapes changed as we saw them from various perspectives and the sunlight altered the light and shadows on them. It was the true meaning of the word ‘awesome’.

See the tiny figure of the captain on the ship’s bridge to the right? I captured this image just before sunset at about 10:30 PM. near the town of Ilitek.

I call this image a dreamscape as it is surreal in the symetry of the curving lines as though it was sculpted. It was sculpted — by the best artist of all — nature.
