Photographer's Note

This is another oldie from my university expedition to East Greenland in the summer of 1970.

Here, at the Danish air base at Mestersvig in Scoresbyland (you can see the location if you click on Map:view) we were watching as this helicopter was being refuelled in preparation for taking our little group south over the mountains and over the top of Kolossen and its glaciers to the north part of the Schuchert valley down which we were to have a 40 mile walk and a short boat trip before arriving at the deserted hut at Syd Kap on Scoresby Sund.

Please ignore the exif data because this photograph was taken on Kodachrome 64 colour slide film with my old Edixa Prismat manual SLR. Unfortunately, having updated to Windows 10, my old slide scanner no longer works with this computer so I copied this slide by using a rather primitive home-made set-up using a small desk lamp, an old shoe box, a piece of white paper as a diffuser and my Canon DSLR with a macro lens attached.

Please click here for a larger version of this photograph on "beta" TE.
