On my way from Holland to Puerto Rico, last December, I saw a cloudless Greenland. Some pics from this spectacular piece of the world:

Wow... look at all that green in Greenland ;) You know not all of Greenland is ice and snow! Pretty much all along the eastern, southern, and western coast/border, it's ice/snowfree (in the summer) and can even get "up to" +10 degrees :)

Anyway, thanks for showing us a part of Denmark not too many people have seen before :eek:kay:

Greenland is really green in the Southernmost tip, the rest is mostly glacier and packed ice.

Wonderful pics of Greenland!
Pity me for my ignorance, but is there any sign of civilization in Greenland?
Greenland does have it's tiny towns.. like these:




It's not much.. But what do you expect, from a province with a population of only 56,000 ;)

Kalaallit Nunaat, meaning "the humans' Land", still in English that is Greenland or Grønland in Danish. Thank you very much for these pics - I have never been/seen. Are the last two pictures taken in Nuuk (Godthåb), the capital?

there's no way those 2 photos are of Nuuk, the capital. it is a modern city of around 15 000 people where construction just finished on a 9-story building downtown, making it the tallest building in the country.
