This voyage started in Iceland then sailed to East Greenland, traversed Prins Christianssund, then proceeded along the coast of Western Greenland, and terminated in Iqaluit, Canada. The most exciting wildlife encountered during the voyage was the Fin Whale. This species of whale is the second largest mammal, second only to the Blue Whale, and can reach 75 feet in length and weigh up to 150,000 pounds and swim at 25 miles per hour and is known as the "Greyhound" of the seas. The weather during this voyage ran the gamut from clear and sunny days to deep overcast with heavy mist. As such the light conditions presented many difficult problems for the photographer with rewards as well.
