PHOTO GALLERY: Greenland in Black & White

Greenland’s saturated sunsets and deep blue waters can challenge even the best painter’s palette, but Greenland can also be quite stunning in black and white. The chiaroscuro effect adds an element of mystery and enchantment, and at times it can be downright eerie!

So, as a direct follow-up to yesterday’s photo gallery, Colorful Greenland, today I present to you my best black and white shots.

      Yes, I work for the national tourist board in Nuuk, called Visit Greenland. But I don’t live in Greenland yet, so for now I travel back and forth between the US and Greenland.

      Cheers!
