Fishing hole in the ice, Greenland

The small island of Uummannaq lies on the West coast of Greenland, where more than 80% of the land is covered by an ice cap that is in places, up to 4km thick. Local Inuit residents hunt and fish from the sea ice, or travel over it in order to reach fertile hunting grounds.
