In July, record ice melt was recorded in Greenland. High levels of melting occurred at two different times during the month (click here for details).
As it turned out, my mom and I were flying over and taking pictures of Greenland during the second big melt. We were returning from Finland and got some photos of icebergs breaking away from and melting ice pooling up on Greenland's glaciers.
I was glad to get the pictures because with melting events like those experienced last month, I'm not sure how much longer such pictures will be possible.
Here is a picture of some icebergs heading out to sea from the east coast of Greenland:
