Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Bear Islands, East Greenland” by Mike Long.
“Floating through calm waters in the Bear Islands east of Scoresbysund, Greenland,” describes Long. “With towering mountains rising thousands of feet directly out of the narrow fjords and enormous glaciers calving into the sea, photo opportunities here are endless. I like this particular shot primarily because of the balance of elements—rock, ice, water and sky—but also the interesting tones that, in combination, are hard to find elsewhere in the world. There’s a sense of peacefulness and calm, but also a feeling of foreboding as the storm approaches.”
