Greenland, Earth’s largest island, has a remarkable geography. With an intricate coastline longer than Russia’s, and the interior a vast ice sheet second only to Antarctica’s, drawing it was intense. In the far south, Norse ruins stand in the shadows of impossibly vertical peaks like Ketil Mountain. Pockets of stunted forest are found in valleys like the Qinngua. Polar bear, caribou, muskox, hare, sheep, puffin, seal, fox… the wildlife at the coast play a central role in the identity of this island. Up on the ice sheet however, little can survive. A dog sled team can be seen traversing the island, not far from Summit Camp - a research station over 3000 metres above sea level. It’s worth noting that the north-eastern fifth of Greenland lies beyond the northern edge of the paper, so did not make it onto the map. Here’s a sample of some content: • Cape York meteorite (northwest). One of the largest iron meteorites ever found.
• Uummannaq mountain, iconic mountain behind its namesake town.
• Sarfaq Ittuk – sole ship of the Arctic Umiaq Line at Ilulissat – its northern terminus.
• Qinngua Valley (trees, far south). This one really blew my mind. Never knew Greenland had a few forests. They’re not the tallest forests, but they’re very beautiful - and there are trees over 7 metres high. Some are planted, some are natural – the Qinngua is natural. • Ammassalik drum (far northeast)
• Little auk (small black bird in northeast)
• Camp Century – represented by the nuclear symbol. Abandoned Cold War-era US nuclear base under the ice.
• Summit Station and the Greenland Ice core project. There isn’t much content on the Greenland ice sheet, but this site is quite prominent. In the early 90s, they drilled over 3000 metres deep into the ice, to obtain climate data going back over 100,000 years. A small bore hole can be seen in this depiction.
• Kangerlussuaq Airport (SFJ). One of Greenland’s two major airports, with a red Air Greenland vessel.
• Heli-skiing by Maniitsoq
• Soccer ball in Tasiilaq. This town is famous for its soccer championship and has one of the most dramatic soccer fields in the world.
• Royal Arctic Line Ship in Nuuk.
• Tupilaq – carved figure near Tasiilaq.

Greenland has a national costume - traditional Inuit animal skin garb transformed with Danish textiles and beads, big beaded collar, embroidered fabric anoraks with sealskin borders, with sealskin boots - and the Greenlandic people wear it proudly on special days. These special days include national celebrations, religious holidays—and weddings. Feeling very special to be able to wear this beautifully handmade costume by the Greenlandic elders❤️🇬🇱 #Inuit #Greenlandic #Greenlandnationalcostume

Nalinngik angajulleq Naalanngik nukarleq 💔 Im sick af, but went to see the pups anyway - I cant stay away. Used Boris and Nuka to pull a sled full of fresh caught cod, my dad, brother and sister in law caught. I usually dont let go of Nuka, cause I know he wont come back on call, but I was so tired after pacing 50 with my lungs half way out, that I had to let go or he would have pulled my arm off. These are the culprits after I chased them around, saw them run down our usual path, Nuka head high and Boris chasing him.. they disappeared for good three minutes, just to pass me by again.. they heard that I was really pissed and both chose to hide in their box. Ive learned my lesson, dont do manual labor while having coughing fits every five minutes... greenlanddogs are for people with a lot of patience... or something... Im not gonna lie, my dogs arent perfect and I have faults in my training

Art by nature. This is the rendezvous between the tidal wave and the melting stream. Or is it a satellite photo of Iceland? Or a drone photo of a river delta? Nature creates all sorts of scapes that sparks my imagition. Hope this image will spark yours too.

Sort of peach 🍑
Ledsaget af solskin og Fläskkvartettens 'Jag ger vad som helst för lite solsken', lavede jeg i går, en ferskenfarvet eyeliner.
Jeg tegnede eyelineren op med min Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencil i Milk og lagde en øjenskygge over, fra min Morphe 35o palette.
Den kombination viste sig at være ganske holdbar. ☄️ @morphebrushes 35o Eyeshadowpalette, @rudolphcare sunlotion, @tromborgcom Eyegel, @maccosmetics Face and body foundation @w7makeupuk Hollywood Bronze & Glow, @nyxcosmeticsnordics Jumbo Eye pencil Milk , @maybelline Age Rewind concealer @thebalm_cosmetics Marylou Manizer Highlighter @nyxcosmeticsnordics Micro Brow pencil, @clarinsdk wonder perfect mascara, @essence_cosmetics make me Brow,

Seems like spring is finally coming to Nuuk 😎The snow is melting rapidly now - revealing rocks and changing the view. From day to day.
