Photographer's Note

Well, here's another one from the archives. The "archives" consist of a dusty box in the loft with boxes of slides and old prints. This is one of a series of pictures I took during a university expedition to East Greenland exactly 38 years ago, in the summer of 1970.

This is a very young me sitting on a rock at Syd Kap, where we had the use of a small wooden hut. I am admiring the icebergs which lie pretty much at the junction of two large masses of water - Scoresby Sund, which passes out to the Greenland Sea and the Arctic Ocean, and Nordvest Fjord, the longest fjord in the World, which travels right into the centre of Greenland.

Picture shot with my old Edixa Prismat SLR on Kodachrome 64 which was pretty new at the time and almost 2 stops faster than Kodachrome 25 which, in turn was almost 2 stops faster than the original Kodachrome, if anyone else remembers that - it was 10 ASA or ISO 10!

Transparency scanned and then edited in PSE6. Most of the editing was to clone out piles of dust and crud on the picture.

All comments/critiques/advice welcome.
