Elephant Foot Glacier.

The Elephant Foot Glacier is located on the Kronprins Christian Land peninsula.
It is not connected to Greenland’s main ice sheet. Rather, it’s part of a network of glaciers and ice caps that hangs around the periphery of the island.
Research has shown that as a whole, these outlying glaciers and ice caps account for 5 to 7 percent of Greenland’s total ice coverage, but they are responsible for 20 percent of its contribution to sea level rise.

The polar bear found a portion of fast ice which rapidly became his home.

Chilling Landscapes of Greenland.

Greenland’s bays are dotted with icebergs, also known as growlers, that have sheared off from glaciers.
Waider writes about the landscape in wondering tones on his blog: ‘This place is one of the most unique places I have seen in my life.
Icebergs breaking off the massive glacier are sometimes so large, they seem like small floating countries – you could easily fit a small town on top of them’
