Scoresby sound in South East Greenland is the largest Fjord complex on Earth, it is also the least populated and has one of the most isolated communities on Earth…. Interesting stats, but the best bits are that it is completely unique and amazingly beautiful. Seeing Scoresby Sound by boat during the brief far Northern hemisphere summer is definitely one of the highlights of my career so far. To sail around surrounded by sheer rock walls hundreds of metres high in fjords that are hundreds of metres deep (I spent some time time watching the depth sounder on the boat completely awed), while massive ice sculptures that dwarfed the boat floated serenely past is truly something to behold.
Just before taking off to Greenland last year I spent a couple of weeks driving around the wild Southern Highlands of Iceland exploring for this years Iceland photo tour. I had rented a 4wd camper van, which turned out to be clapped out Landrover Defender with a timber platform screwed together in the back as a bed… I paid more to rent this car for the two weeks than I would have paid to buy it back here in Australia! Still, it got me to some amazing places where you really do need 4wd, and provided shelter for the many times it rained. If you look carefully, you can see the car in the bottom left corner in the image below. From this distance you can’t tell just how tired and worn out it is. If you look even more carefully you can see the tiny shapes of two climbers on the mountain in the top right hand corner.
Last year I went to Greenland’s Scoresby Sound for the first time… and it’s taken me this long to write about it. I think I am about 18 months behind in my processing right now, which has got to be some kind of record. I used to complain about being stuck in the gallery all the time without any time to actually get out shooting, now I have the opposite problem, I shoot so much I don’t seem to have the time to process at all! For example, I am writing this from a hotel (a rare night in a hotel to dry out the swag) while touring around Tasmania… More on this later.
Another year draws to a close and I can hardly believe it’s over already! Thanks to everyone who supported my efforts this year, came on a tour, participated in a workshop, came into the Gallery or just stopped and chatted in the street, if you didn’t do any of these things, there is always next year. Speaking of next year, it’s going to be a big one, hold on!
Gallery Holiday Hours.
All of us at the Gallery are taking a short break over Christmas and New Year, we will be back again for business as usual January 8th 2017. Until then, have a Merry Christmas and fun and relaxing New Year’s.
I have just had two spots open up for my 2016 Greenland photographic sailing adventure due to last minute cancellations. This is really last minute, as the tour actually begins from Reykjavik (Iceland) next week on 2nd of August!
To help you decide I am offering a huge discount on these two places, instead of US$6900 per place, you can have the tour for US$4500 per place. You can read all about the Greenland Sailing Photo Tour right here>>
