Tiny plants of the Arctic

Small plants stretch up to the fading winter Arctic light in Alpefjord, Greenland

When you are surrounded by the immense landscape of Arctic Greenland it can be really difficult to tear your eyes away from the rugged mountains, the endless calm ocean and the glistening icebergs to look at the floor – but it is worth it. At your feet you’ll find a surprising array of tiny plants that somehow manage to survive in the cold, rugged ground. Thankfully one crew member of MS Expedition was a keen botanist and he was always pointing out stunning wee plants that we were about to crush with our huge feet. It’s nice to take a different perspective on this incredible landscape and stop to appreciate the smaller things in life.
