[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
In Arctic Greenland darkness is banished in the high summer. As the short green season is displaced by cooling temperatures, darkness again creeps back into the North. This shot was taken in August at 67.5 degrees North in western Greenland not far from the Russell Glacier.

The puffy sedges in the foreground are cottongrass from the genus Eriophorum. They are indicative of low pH growing environments.

Hi Jeff,
Very interesting post from that remote location.
I like the colour contrast displayed here, and the selective focus on the cottongrasses.
Congratulations and thanks for share it,

Glad to make your acqaintence.
Great "control" of the colour contrasts. Looks like you know what you are doing.
A bit noisey; a very minor issue.
This is a first for TN.... this type of photography!!!
Congratulations and keep them coming.
Mario from Calgary Alberta Canada with friendly greetings.
