PHOTO GALLERY: Greenland in Black & White

Greenland’s saturated sunsets and deep blue waters can challenge even the best painter’s palette,┬ábut 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 complement to the photo gallery, Colourful Greenland, here I present to you some of my best black and white shots. They are old, but evergreen.
