Uummannaq Town, Greenland


This place really could re-write the book on picturesque. I don't know how you build a house that is sympathetic with such surroundings, so I think that the Greenlanders have a much better solution in making their architecture add to the environment by being so obvious. A back-drop of muted earth colours suits the bright buildings perfectly.

These are pictures from a cruise to the High Arctic in August 2010, from Resolute Bay Canada to Kangerlussuaq in Greenland.
