Photo of the Month November 2017 : On Winters Cusp

The photograph of the month for November 2017 was taken on the second of two back-to-back expeditions to the East Coast of Greenland (read the trip report) in September and October this year. On the cusp of winter, the skies were heavily overcast and the sea was beginning to freeze in one of the many fjord systems we were exploring. I used the Canon 11-24mm F4L lens at 11mm and simply leant right over the side of the boat to get as low as possible. The aim with this sort of photograph is to try and lead the eye from the foreground ice to the distant icebergs and mountains. The key to making it work is to get as low as possible whilst still maintaining perspective and depth.
