Live from Uummannaq
Something strange is going on the Uummannaq Bay: Last night the Uummannaq Bay filled itsselve with icebergs. Normally a happening for September........
The melting icebergs, cracking in pieces, is so loud that you even can hear it in your bed.
I don't have final plans for today, but leaving tomorrow.
I keep you posted, cheers, Ap

In the middle of the night
Yesterday we filmed at 24:00 sharp. The sun touched the horizon but didn't go down. A great experience! We noticed that our iceberg was leaning to one site, but after we returned form the old Inuit mummy graves at the other side of the fjord, it turned back again in the good position. Unbelievable that an iceberg get's a character. Greetings from Uummannaq, Temperature: T-shirt, full sunshine, no wind.

Sculptures are crossing Uummannaq
Today we went with a boat to film the departure of the sculptures towards the Baffin Bay. Because the camera shakes in the boat, we decided to place the camera on other icebergs, that also provided us fot ater of thousands of years old. Great weather, great pictures, what can I say more? Keep you updated,

Arrival in uummannaq
I just returned from our first trip to the floating iceberg. It' s great and unbelievable how fast it is drifting. The shape didn't change much during it's drift, so we believe it will travel for a long time. The bay is filled with icebergs, way many more than in March. It looks like the wind will slow down, so we return to film a good impression. I included a picture of the dreamteam of the Uummannaq Polar Institute. A great crew.
Tonight we plan to go to Uummanatsiaq and stay there for while. I never was in Greenland without snow, but now I know where the green is coming from: It has to be the colour of the water.
I keep you posted. Cheers, Ap

THE SCULPTURES ARE DRIFTING!
Ole Jorgen Hammeken, together with his wife Ann Andreasen, our both bestest friends, immediately took a boat and sent us the pictures. THANKS! We are more than excited where the voyage will go.
As you can see, the start was going deeper into the bay, but now they are on their way back to Uummannaq, hopefully soon in Baffin Bay. Shortly new posts will arrive. We keep you in touch.

'The angle between earth and the sun changed'
I can't get it out of my mind. Did the composition of atmospheric gasses change so that the breaking angle changed? I still don't have an explanation, but am sure that something changed. Who knows the answer?
