Friday October 4 was a sailing day back down to Krossfjorden glacier and anchored at Ifortende Julibukta. There were two landings: one in the morning and then again in the afternoon. Large plains of snow framed by heavy grey and pink sweeps of sky before us as we landed on a beach of scattered ice: chunks, boulders, and pebble sized in surprising shapes. But the morning light was flat and grey with the sun only shining on the glacier across the water.
Finally with the afternoon landing it began to slowly graze the snow and light up the shore of transparent glasslike shapes of ice providing dramatic shadows all around.
