​A striking 2 a.m. sunrise in Disko Bay, Greenland

This photograph was taken at 2AM on Disko Bay in Greenland. I had been sailing for several hours between immense icebergs, and the clouds were building in such a way that it was becoming clear that the sunrise was going to be something special.

Upon approaching a patterned iceberg floating between smaller pieces of ice, the light struck it from the side in a way that accentuated its texture. The smaller ice pieces provided the foreground, and it all really came together wonderfully.

The image won a gold medal on the 2015 Arctic Awards.

Photo taken with a Canon 5D Mark III and Canon 16-35mm f/4L IS.
