Alpine Azalea

Alpine Azalea - Tiny Greenlandic Flowers
 Zoom back a good ten years and my photographic reality was very far removed from that of today.
I had a curiosity for all aspects of photography and was working slowly on how to apply them to the world around me.

The flora in subarctic Greenland, OK in all of Greenland, is diverse and amazing in so many ways.
The Alpine Azelea in particular remained a tiny wonder to me.
Incredibly tiny, but also incredibly robust, no leaves as such but stubby and tough green almost pine-cone like substitutes.

The image above remain a personal favourite among my images of Greenlandic flora and, and while I did not know it at the time, it marked the beginning of years of photography of Greenlandic flora as small side projects when working on larger projects during summer.
