In the first evening when I arrived in Greenland, although I was quite tired after a fairly long journey that involved a cancelled flight the previous day (after flying from Iceland to Greenland and not being able to land because of high winds), a 3 hour repeat flight the next day and then a 3 hour wait for a helicopter, I couldn’t just go to sleep before walking around through the village and having an initial look at potential spots for photography. I wasn’t planning on spending too much time taking photographs that evening, so I only brought one lens and the tripod with me. In the end I was very happy I did bring the camera.
I don’t know how long this boat has been washed up there, but the way the smaller icebergs were moving around it and the way the light was hitting the left side of the boat, I knew I had to spend a bit of time there. I did return to this same spot 2 days later, but the light was completely different and this ended up as being the only shot I’m happy with. So in this case, the saying “the best camera is the one you have with you” really paid off.
