First, I want to thank all of you who commented on my last blog post!! I did not expect to receive that much response, and it has motivated me to keep blogging, although I haven`t actually posted anything since then. With the return of the sun and clear and cold weather conditions, I have simply been concentrating on other things … but now, I´m back 🙂 !
This first picture was taken in the end of January, when we finally were able to see the sun!
Everything looked different in sunlight. I did take many pictures that day!!
In terms of hunting, Ingkasi went on a couple of succesful hunting trips to the ice-edge between Kap Hope and Kap Steward during the first weeks of February, bringing home food for us and the dogs.
I stayed in Ittoqqortoormiit, but began training my dogs on the ice close to town.
Every day brought more daylight and beautiful sunsets.
After a long and stormy January, mostly spend inside the house, sitting out storms, it was very refreshing to be able to spend time outside.
A week ago, Ingkasi and I, together with a visitor from Denmark, went to the hot spring close to Kap Tobin. It is astonishing to smell, see and feel the hot water, when air temperatures reach below -20 degrees Celsius.
By now, days are long and bright, and the dark wintertime almost forgotten.
We are excited to see what the next coupe of months hold in hand!!
P.S.: Lately, a famous Greenlandic musician and the Sirius Military Dogsled Patrol have visited Ittoqqortoormiit. I will soon be back with pictures from these events :-).
Wunderschön! Danke, Ruth! Scheint eine gute Zeit für einen Besuch zu sein… 😉
Danke, Jörg, und ja – definitiv eine gute Zeit für einen Besuch – wenn man nichts gegen die Kälte hat 🙂 ! Jetzt im Februar lag die Temperatur meistens um die -20 Grad! Im März, und besonders im April, wird es dann meistens schon milder, und die Sonne wärmt mehr…. LG
What a gorgeous part of the world! Loved the sunset!
Så flotte bilder, Ruth. Takk som deler.
Godt at høre fra dig, Anne Torhild, og tusen tak for pakken!!
Endnu engang tak for at dele denne side 🙂
Tak Ruth, det er SÅ dejligt at kunne følge lidt med – omend på afstand ❤
Ja… det lyder som om du har “hjemve” ❤ Jeg glæder mig til at gå på langrend sammen med dig når du kan komme herop igen, vinterstid 🙂 Og denne tid på året er jo lige noget for dig!!
Beautiful pictures ! I especially like the first two pictures, amazing scenery 🙂
Thanks 🙂 glad to hear that!!
