Photographer's Note

No visitors to Ilullisat ever forget the meaning of the town´s name: "The Icebergs"
All year round huge icebergs raising more than a metres above the water are stranded in the fiord.
These icebergs are all products of the mighty and most productive glacier in the Northern hemisphere.
The Ilulissat glacier, which daily gives birth to 20 millions tons of ice !

Ilulissats location 300 kilometres North of the polar circle causes the sun not to set from early june to late july.
A midnight cruise between the gigantic icebergs in the light of the midnight sun is an experience of a lifetime
