    Upernavik is a fishing village on a tiny island in west Greenland. Historically, Greenlandic buildings were painted different colors to indicate different functions, from red storefronts to blue fishermen’s homes—a useful distinction when the landscape is blanketed in snow. This photo was taken during my three-month, personal photo project to present life in Greenland.

    Congratulations on being selected as the Grand Prize for the 2019 National Geographic Travel Photo Contest. This photo is so beautiful, the blue hue of the landscape is gorgeous. I love how quiet this scene is, I love the three individuals walking on the street, perfectly composed under the street lamps. I look forward to seeing more from your project. Keep sharing.
