I travel to all the polar regions every year. I have witnessed the changes taking place environmentally. Still, no matter how many times I see it I am always amazed by the size of the icebergs in Greenland. Look at this image and the sheer size of the iceberg dwarfing our ship. Remember too that we are only seeing approximately 1/10th the iceberg as 9/10ths of it is underwater and in this case grounded on the bottom. I return to Greenland this September with a group o 30 photographers for a workshop I am running as part of Rockhopperworkshops.
Here’s a photo of the Ocean Nova our expedition ship by a glacier in Greenland. Everything in Greenland is imense. even icebrgs wold dwarf our ship. We are headed to Greenland again in 2019. You can check out the information for this trip at the Luminous-Landscape website.
I was going through the images from my trip last August and came across this one. I like this image as it really sums a lot up about Greenland. Large rock walls, icebergs and bits of humanity. The sailboat and iceberg against the solid towering rock walls makes a great shot. I printed this image to 17×22 inches and will be hanging it in my office.
I have said it before and I’ll say it again. Greenland is the land of imensity. This image is a good example. This gigantic glacier winding its way down to the sea and a giant iceberg most likely from another glacier in front of it. It seems everywhere you point your camera in Greenland you see images like this.
Once again I am looking for the picture in the picture. I will say this is an abstract image of a close up of a really pretty iceberg in Greenland. I shot it from a zodiac handheld with a Sony a9 and 100-400mm lens. I found a ton of cool looking ice in Greenland I did this with. I’m going to make large prints and see how it looks on the wall.
I have been photographing lots of icebergs for the last 12 years and never have I seen an iceberg that looks like this. We were miles away and saw this green and blue iceberg and asked the captain to drive us towards it. He obliged and I was able to shoot a ton of images of this beast. I used the Sony a9 and 100-400mm G Master lens to catch both the whole iceberg and close=ups. I worked to find the picture in the picture. The abstract of this ice was just beautiful.
It’s not too late to join our trip to Greenland this summer. You can expect to photograph amazing icebergs like the one above in addition to incredible landscapes the like of which you have never experienced. Check it out at Rockhopperworkshops.
