The light is failing and you get a real sense that winter is coming. Yeah, I know, that line has been taken, but it was true. You could really feel it in the air.
These slightly fuzzy photos are taken in Qaanaaq during our second year in the far, far north of Greenland. I’ve described the green police “houses” many times in my books, this is one of them. Qaanaaq was also one of the few small villages to have two police patrol cars! There was only one police officer, but he had help from a local police reserve/volunteer.
The father and daughter climbing the stairs on the left of the picture are going up and over the water and electricity cables that run above ground. They are insulated inside long boxes made of wood with bitumen roofs. The “boxes” are the length of the pipes and make fabulous arteries the kids run along… even though they are repeatedly told not too. 😉
Oh, and some icebergs.
