Alan Barrett Images | Intimate Landscapes | Greenland icebergs

Located on the west coast of Greenland, 250 km north of the Arctic Circle, Ilulissat Icefjord is the sea mouth of the Sermeq Kujalleq glacier, one of the few glaciers through which the Greenland icecap reaches the sea. The opening of the fjord into Disko Bay is often clogged with huge bergs awaiting sufficiently higher temperatures to allow release into the bay.

We cruised along the mouth of the fjord on two evenings when the setting sun brought out some wonderful colours in the bergs.
