Lomfjord – 07th Juli 2015

After a long evening yesterday with Fin whales and countless Brünich’s guillemots, we started a bit later into the day today. The famous erratic boulder in Lomfjord, a gigantic specimen placed with admirable precision by ice age glaciers on a narrow ridge a good 330 metres above sea level, only came out of the fog when we had actually reached it. But the wind kindly blew a hole into the fog, so we could enjoy the views on Hinlopen Strait, Lomfjord and the large glaciers and wide moraines in the neighbouring valleys, which set us mentally back into the pleistocene.
