Well, this is my first entry from Greenland. You would think it would be very easy to get a shot of something cold, but believe it or not the sun is actually making it a little challenging. I mean 2 in the morning while walking back from the bar the damn sun is still up. That just isn't natural.

So this is one of the glaciers that is in the fjord that contains three glaciers. I know that was a bunch of words that said nothing, but I shot this on a very windy afternoon today. Seems the wind is a constant up here.

I wasn't really happy with the exposure so I am trying to hide it with the BW conversion. Since it was so windy I didn't stick around to see how the image looked after I took it. I just kind of clicked and ran.

I doubt this will get that high of a vote. If I can break a 5 that would be good. Maybe I should aim a little lower, say maybe a 4.5.

Oh well, we shall see.

Maybe in and less contrast would be better.

No strong element making the composition attractive, the foreground (sea?) could have been that element, but is way too dark, almost completely black on my monitor.

Too much murky foreground, but some nice moraine details.

Nice scenic shot, but the bottom third is too distrcating might have croped it differentlt.

I think that the photo would be better if it was in color.
