To the front pageAgain, all photos were taken by Steve, except (obviously) the ones with Steve in them. Those were taken by Henry. Meaning, of course, that the really nice ones were taken by Steve, and the not-so-nice ones? Not. At any rate, these have been resampled and cropped so that you don't have to wait forever. You should, upon seeing me, ask to see the actual prints. By the way, have you checked out last year's photos? They're still online, you know. Go back to my home page and look.

The unconformity where the Thule sediments lie over top of the basement rocks. As if that wasn't exciting enough, it makes for a nice photo, too!
Amazing erosional features in the Thule.
A dyke cutting the Thule sediments. We didn't sample this one.

The hunting camp of Qeqertarsuaq, on Herbert Island. No, it's not the same as the Qeqertarsuaq to the south, near Nuuk, though with a name like that, you'd expect repeats.
Siorapaluk, the most northerly permanent settlement in the world, from the boat.
Iceberg near Siorapaluk - in fact, between us and Siorapaluk.
