Photographer's Note

Another picture from East Greenland taken in July, 1970 during an eight-week expedition to Scoresbyland from Dundee University, an expedition in which I, as a 22-year-old student, was fortunate enough to participate.

This time a picture of our expedition leader, Dr. Iain Smart, an experienced mountaineer, explorer and sailor, standing in the prow of our little 16-foot clinker-built boat, with oar at the ready to fend off ice floes while I gingerly drive the little five-horsepower outboard motor.

A shot from the archives, this was taken with my old Edixa Prismat SLR using an old Weston Master III meter (both of which I bought secondhand and still have) on Kodachrome 64 colour transparency film and scanned into the computer. Looking at this, I don't really think my photographic skills have improved at all in the last 40 years!
