Boats in Port, Uumannaq, Greenland

Year: 2010 Taken by: Lawrence Hislop
Uummannaq is 700km north of the Arctic Circle, just north of Disko Island, Greenland. It experiences three months of the famous Midnight Sun - between May and August. The major industries (fishing and seal hunting) rely heavily on the presence of sea ice for access to the animals.
