• roam / awards • A mountain of ice is locked in the grip of the frozen Atlantic Ocean in East Greenland. This is the photograph that @roam selected as a finalist photograph for the awards, so I thought I might tell its story today. We’d been stuck in Sermiligaaq for days, because the helicopter that would normally fly us back to Kulusuk was broken down, and the weather was terrible. Once it finally let up, we were able to make the 75km trip by dogsled over the sea ice, led by an incredible Emmanuelle Boassen—one of great sledsman alive. There is nothing quite so surreal as gliding on an ocean of ice, bobbing between bergs the size of buildings — and more beautiful than the grandest architecture I’ve ever seen. But unlike stone, this monolith would not survive the summer, and is now part of our ocean, our air, the water we drink—or maybe, back on the glacier, hoping to reincarnate as another glorious sculpture of ice. I hope especially for that last one, because these majestic sights are fleeting fast. Let’s each of us do a little to help keep this majestic planet just that—majestic. Taken as part of the making of @the.last.ice.hunters in which we documented the 4,000 year old culture of the Greenlandic people, who I love and can’t wait to return to. #greenland#greenlandpioneer#thelasticehunters#north#66north#arctic#atlantic#iceberg#glacier#dogsled#storyteller#documentary
Our image of the week is 'Kittiwake, Ittoqqortoormiit, East Greenland', captured by Joe Cornish during his adventure north into the Arctic Circle earlier this year. This journey revealed a spectacular wealth of ice, snow, water and wildlife, illustrated perfectly here as a Kittiwake glides past line upon line of blue ice.
This striking image features in our current '2019: A Retrospective' exhibition and is available to buy as a limited edition, hand printed and signed by Joe Cornish from the Galleries or online now.

In the library at the Scott Polar Research Institute, Cambridge this morning. Just a selection of the books on Greenland. What an amazing resource. A quick bit of research for next years kayaking trip to the west coast of Greenland.
Ups and downs...
Tento rok byl fakt výživný. Ale jede se dál a zase si tady začnu odkládat fotky a zážitky, ať neskončí v digitálním pekle úložišť. Rozhodně toho letos nebylo málo a jednoznačným highlightem byla 10denní plavba ve východním Grónsku, odkud pochází i tato fotka. O tom vám budu ještě povídat. 😊✌️
