Hunters of Greenland

The Times has posted a spectacular slideshow by Ragnar Axelsson of hunters in the east of Greenland who spend up to two months on the ice. It looks like Ansel Adams' Yosemite carved in ice. A wonderful place to visit if it weren't so...cold.
Well maybe in the summer for the salmon run....if it weren't for the...mosquitoes.
One of my heroes - Rockwell Kent - was shipwrecked there and stayed, painting what Axelsson has photographed. His stay was warmed by... Salamina.
