Painted Hills, Greenland

Greenland is a place of wonders.  Discovered by Eric the Red in the late 900s AD, having been exiled first from Norway and then from Iceland, he settled on the South West coast of Greenland.

It was from Greenland that Leif Ericsson ventured West to become the first European to set foot on North America, 500 years before Columbus.

 Greenland is an undiscovered gem, the East coast is dominated by Scoresby Sund (Sound), the largest fjord system in the world, extending hundreds of kilometres inland from the coast.  This image of the multi coloured hills that are ice free in summer was taken deep in the upper reaches of Scoresby Sund on a clear and sunny day in late August 2015.
