FREE image of Kulusuk Icebergs, by Andrew Bossi

GPM &quot;Let it Snow&quot; Photo Contest Winners  The Global Precipitation Measurement mission is happy to announce the top ten winners of the &quot;Let It Snow&quot; photo competition.  Thank you to everyone who submitted their best pictures of winter. From January 7th through February 4th 2013, over 1,000 photos were submitted via Flickr and Instagram (see the Flickr submissions here: <a href="http://bit.ly/VVEubh" rel="nofollow">bit.ly/VVEubh</a>). We loved all of your entries and thoroughly appreciate your participation.  About this image:  Kulusuk Icebergs, by Andrew Bossi  Location: On approach to the airstrip at Kulusuk, Greenland, located on the east coast. The flight departed out of Reykjavík, Iceland.   How this Photo Was Taken: &quot;My write-up of the day covers things in decent detail. Basically my vacation was focused on Scandinavia and hadn't even considered Greenland, but while traveling around Iceland I'd become aware that day trips were offered and I leapt at the opportunity. This approach was my first sight of Greenland. While I've seen plenty of glaciers and mountains, I'd never seen anything like this - it started with endless fields of ice amid the deep blue sea, and some minutes later a wall of frozen rock rose up from the horizon. I'd never seen anything so beautiful.   I think my camera's shutter was snapping almost endlessly right up until we landed. The landing itself was an experience, as our tiny plane descended between the mountains -- rockfaces just outside each window -- and set down on a gravel runway.&quot;   About Photographer Steven Sandner:      More info about this photo: <a href="http://intentionallylost.blogspot.com/2011/06/gl-kulusuk.htm" rel="nofollow">intentionallylost.blogspot.com/2011/06/gl-kulusuk.htm</a>     <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/thisisbossi/">www.flickr.com/photos/thisisbossi/</a>     <a href="http://twitter.com/thisisbossi" rel="nofollow">twitter.com/thisisbossi</a>  <b><a href="http://www.nasa.gov/audience/formedia/features/MP_Photo_Guidelines.html" rel="nofollow">NASA image use policy.</a></b>  <b><a href="http://www.nasa.gov/centers/goddard/home/index.html" rel="nofollow">NASA Goddard Space Flight Center</a></b> enables NASA’s mission through four scientific endeavors: Earth Science, Heliophysics, Solar System Exploration, and Astrophysics.
