English: View of deep canyons, or fjords, along the coat of north-western Greenland. Thin, rocky ridges between the fjords cast their shadows nearly sideways, thanks to low-angled sunlight. Ice rests on the sea surface, and icebergs near the shore poke above the smooth sea ice. The area shown lies in the same region where the Petermann Glacier calved in the summer of 2010.
