click on image to view the 1986 - Greenland: Hurry Inlet photos...
This was my first trip abroad: a camping trip to Hurry Inlet in East Greenland.
We were there in high summer: the sun never set; the flowers were blooming; the hares were
lolloping about, the fox cubs were discovering the world outside their dens; the weather was
only nasty for a day or two…
All in all a fantastic introduction to the high Arctic, and a
wonderful first holiday abroad.
We flew from Glasgow to Constable Point, via Iceland. Once there we got a lift over
Hurry Inlet to Sodal from a man and his boat. Our first camp was at Sodal where we
stayed for a couple of days. Over the next fortnight we walked round the head of
Hurry back to Constable Point.
These are a few of the photos I took with my (then) new OM10. Before scanning them for this
gallery I hadn't looked at the slides for about 15 years, and I binned about two thirds of
them - hopefully my photographic technique has improved somewhat in the interim!
