Special Limited Fine Art Photography Print: Making Waves
I photographed the Special Limited Fine Art Print Making Waves from the main deck of M/S Freya.
Our ship leaves behind a wake of waves in Scoresby Sound, painted red by the setting sun. I waited on the back deck until the ship had passed the iceberg and the waves were rolling directly towards it.
Scoresby Sound in East Greenland is the largest fjord system in the world. The landscape is simply breathtaking.
The sound is a deep inlet of the Greenland Sea, which penetrates eastern Greenland for 70 miles (110 km). Numerous fjords (the longest 130 miles) extend to the edge of the inland ice cap, where they are fed by large glaciers. The sound, charted by William Scoresby in 1822, is dotted with islands; the largest, Milne Land, is about 60 miles long and 25 miles wide and rises to 7,987 feet (2,434 metres). Ittoqqortoormiit (also called Illoqqortoormiut; Danish: Scoresbysund) is a hunting and fishing town founded in 1924 by Ejnar Mikkelsen. The town lies north of the sound’s mouth at a place where fishing is possible throughout the year.
The Special Limited Fine Art Print Making Waves has a limited edition of only 25. Most other fine art photographers have a much higher limited edition number. The lower the number the higher is the value of the print. Please also browse through my other limited editions Limited Fine Art Prints (edition of 100) and Exclusive Art Collector Prints (edition of ONLY 5).
