This week’s sunset is from Ilulissat, Greenland!
Each evening in Greenland, we couldn’t wait to go outside and see what the sunset was going to be like. It was ever changing as we sailed through different bays and fjords of the Arctic Circle. It was when we were in particularly icy sections of our expedition that we found the sunsets to be most extraordinary. This was a beautiful sunset in Ilulissat, home to the most active calving glacier on earth. The Jakobshavn Glacier produces 35 billion tonnes of icebergs each year so you can imagine how clogged the water was with epic ice as our ship passed by. I don’t know how the captain managed to navigate his way through each day, but he did with great skill and ease allowing us to experience extraordinary scenes like this.
A big thank-you to our adventurous friends, Dave & Deb of The Planet D for taking the time out of their crazy schedules to share this photo with us! You can see more of their stunning photography here.
