Over the last couple of years, I was lucky enough to travel to some of the more icy regions of the planet and one thing I learnt to get used to in all these trips is the fact that you cannot control the weather. When the weather is bad, all you can do is relax and try again the next day.
The same was the case with my trip to Greenland. I was supposed to fly yesterday morning and although we got tantalizingly close, we couldn’t land because of the strong winds. So today, I boarded the plane again and this time it all worked out. I landed in Kulusuk on the East coast of Greenland and after about an hour of waiting I boarded a helicopter for a quick 10 minute trip to the small village of Ammasalik. Helicopters or boats are the only way to get here and the locals who were also doing the helicopter trip were nice enough to let me sit by the window so I can try and get some shots.
Shooting from the helicopter is not the easiest thing to do, particularly when you have to do it through the windows, but in the end I actually shot two images I liked and the one above is one of them. As you can see, it’s a beautiful place and I can’t wait to see this up-close when I board a boat in the morning to sail through the fjords.
