I have been trying to find an interesting location and a friend suggested Greenland. Does anyone have any experience shooting there and could you recommend areas or specific sites. I can have about one week on the ground. I would assume the best way in is o fly to Rycavick.
Thanks for your help
I've only been there once, but unfortunately the shooting opportunities were severely limited... by several heavily armed gentlemen
Many moons ago my flight from Finland to San Francisco got diverted to Thule Air Base in Greenland due to a fire suppression system that mysteriously went off in the cargo hold somewhere over the North Atlantic. After we landed, the flight crew strongly suggested that we leave all photographic equipment on the plane while they worked out what to do. A friendly but stern contingent of the indigenous population quickly ushered us into a Rec Center and posted some of their friends at the doors to enforce that suggestion. Fortunately it was a lightly loaded flight, so the flight crew was able to move all the luggage into the cabin for the remainder of the flight.
Closer to the topic, though... going over the pole in the other direction is an excellent opportunity to catch a ~4hr sunset, and possibly depending on time of the year some aurora borealis as well.
EDIT: Oh yeah, and what little I saw of the Air Base itself was the very picture of "bleak desolation"...
