We all know Mother Nature can be dangerous if we are not careful when exploring her beauty...

I quite liked the contrasts in the image the red roof and the subdued colours of the surrounding landscape.

Hi Dave,
Thanks for liking and commenting.

Where I live the difference between high and lwo tide is between 2.5 and 3.5 meters or so, which on its own is something to be aware of when anchoring up.
Add the potential danger of ice flakes like the one in the background.

Two possible explanations, as far as we were able to see.
Most likely he was anchored on top of a large underwater boulder just to the right of where he now lies. which at low tide is just under the surface, that would have caused the boat to tilt, flod and sink.
Or he might have been grazed by medium sized iceflake, given the surounding it is not quite as likely, but uphere it is always a risk.

A meetup in Greenland can easily be arranged. I have the contacts to set everything up, but the challenge would be the cost.
If there is enough interest and commitment I will gladly do the work to set it all up.

Wonderful image, a lot more dramatic than the rental dinghy mast I saw sticking up out of the water here in Virginia.

Thank you Tim,
It was most surprisng as we did not see it upon arrival, it was only at low tide it reveal itself.
Did feel a bit scary though as it was in a small side fiord 100km from Nuuk, where people rarely come, as the ice can make getting there a little tricky.
