Greenland photos!
Posted By: Adam, 08-08-2008, 03:35 PM

Since I'm making a one-day stop in Copenhagen on my way back from a weeklong trip to Greeland, I figured I'd use today to upload all of the photos I had processed from the trip and post about them here! I spent all of last week aboard the MS Fram, sailing through Greenlandic icefjords and visiting some local villages and towns. I won't hesitate to say that this has been one of the most magnificent- and unique- places I have ever been to!

As usual, the rest of the gallery, as well as more information about the trip, can be found on my site. Questions and comments welcome! If you'd like any of these photos blown up, printed, and framed, drop me a PM!

Full gallery: Greenland 2008: Exclusive Photos by Adam and Ole Oest

A few of my favorites:


I took all of these with the K20D and either the DA* 50-135 or FA* 80-200. The weather sealing sure came in handy when they took us out on the pontoon boats!

Adam, it's been a while since I've seen any of your images! Not much else to say - it's already been said, except... you really got much, much more than "your money's worth" on this trip... such memories....

That scenery is stunning and you've captured it perfectly. I really like the colorful houses. Is there a story behind all buildings being painted in such bold colors?

What great images. The lighting and colors are surreal! Good work.


P.S. Major photo jealousy at work here...

I suspect that there isnt that much(if any PP)then these are prime keepers

Im blown away with the texture in the icebergs and surrounds

Easy commercial prints here with collectors snapping them up

Fantastic series Thanks for sharing
