Flight over the southern tip of Greenland & the Labrador Coast

Version française de ce texte

Good day everyone!!

Finally! I am breaking the silence of the last month and a half. Recently, I had the great pleasure of spending two weeks in Paris for a research project. Last Wednesday, during my flight back to Canada, our plane flew over the southern tip of Greenland just as the sunset was settling in. Couldn’t have been any luckier especially that, up to that point, the sky had been extremely cloudy. Fortunately, it all cleared up at the right moment to allow us to admire the view. Our good fortune continued until we arrived over the coast of Labrador. According to the flight’s maps that were showing on my screen, we flew over the region between Hopedale and Makkovik.

With no further delay, here are a few of the photos taken (on December 7, 2011) of these northern countries .
