Greenland's east coast is called "the back side" by those on the west side, where most people and all institutions are located. The east side is wild, huge and very very scarcely inhabited. Gneiss and granite peaks dip their feet in ice saturated fjords and channels and here on the inlet is Tiniteqilaq, last comunity on the way up Sermilik Fjord. It is a beautifully calm morning and we are on our way to pick a group of hikers who are returning from a week long trip up and down the east shore of Sermilik.
The name of the village is as symetrical at the picture itself. :)

Incredible reflection, and amazing landscape, so beautiful. I love all the way all the different lines interact.

I was surpried to see mountains in Denmark!
The picture is really fantastic and simmetric (like the name!), the reflection is perfect and now I wish really to visit this wonderful region!

This may got an overdose on "sharpening", but the colors from Fujichrome Velvia 50 is unbeatable, my friend.
There is a long way for me to arrive where you shot this picture, and a longer way before I reach the level that you professionally took your photographs.
In other words, I am behind you to learn the techs, and to enjoy the Greenland pictures.
