UNESCO World Heritage since 2004. At the shallow mouth of the fjord the huge icebergs from the Sermeq Kujalleq glacier get stuck. The glacier is the most productive on the Northern Hemisphere, and flows at a rate of 20-35 m per day.

It's too bad that we can't set the zoom scale for the air photos that display. This one really needs a few clicks out to fully understand the area, and most probably won't think to do that. It really must have been a fascinating place to ride through.

Hello kamalyn, it was a very fascinating place with all icebergs in the night and very nice light (but very cold). This one is taken from the boat, as the other night photos, almost "ground level" :-). I agree it is a problem with many photos you see on Panoramio, they do not look so good in the normal view, sometimes also unsharp, but when you show them in full size they can be excellent both in colours and sharpness. I have found many of them. Sometimes the photographer has been aware of it and written "please enlarge", which also encourage you too look. Greetings, Mats.
