Over Greenland

Just coming in over the East coast of Greenland on a spectacular sunny day.

The majestic glaciers seem to softly be discharging their icebergs into the crystal clear fjords. There are no signs of human life or activity whatsoever down there. In spite of the beauty, conditions for life are harsh.

The contrast between the comfort of the aircraft cabin with its Internet connectivity many thousands of meters up in the athmosphere is striking.

I think I have written it before, but the Greenland coasts on a clear day from high above is one of the most breathtaking sights on Earth.
