Greenland – Nanortalik #2


More of my photographs on the subject of NANORTALIK, that small isolated community in south-west Greenland.   Because of the long hours of darkness during the northern winters and the stark roughness of the surrounding scrub-land and mountains, the people choose to paint their houses in bright colours.  This adds a great charm to the views as well as making sure they stand out against the often dull and grey background.

  1. It is hard to imagine spending that amount of time in the dark Roland. The colour of the houses provide a stark contrast with the rugged scenery. You have captured it well with your photographs.
