My layers of Goretex and fleece were quickly stripped, as our group of ‘long’ walkers went for a long trek across part of Ymer Island in Eastern Greenland.
The geology of igneous rocks of the Palaeozoic age; Devonian extrusive rocks; and Cambrian deposits exposed themselves and created for me a sense of the age of the earth and gave me pause to reflect on my own significance as I walked the landscape.
We crossed a peninsular where the sun shone into the pristine water, and the stones were round from the constant rumbling of the ocean waves. I spent some time watching the expanding circles join and expand; as I tossed small stones into the crystal water. The path of reflections where the light refracted, danced across the wavy lines in the sad below. I felt child like.
Evidence of volcanic and glacial history were prominent in the landscape. Traces of animal steps ghosted the sand.
Once again I carried my pocket canon G16 to create photographs of this remarkable environment. Walk with me across this beautiful landscape on this stunning day by viewing my images by clicking here; and imagine walking this pristine landscape with me.
