    Fishing boat and icebergs near Ilulissat, Greenland


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Inspired to travel to Greenland after reading a story on CNN.com, JSwensen says Ilulissat and the rest of the arctic gem was incredibly beautiful, including this mystical sight of a ship winding its way through icebergs and misty fog. Sitting on a hilltop overlooking the fjord as he watched ships go by, he says it was simply too tempting of a photo opportunity. "It really was beautiful. Piloting a boat through that ice seems to require a great deal of patience," he says. "I didn't get to go on a real fishing boat, but I passed through the same water on a similar-sized boat while on a midnight iceberg cruise and a long boat trip north to Eqi Glacier." This image was featured as CNN's Travel Photo of the Day for March 5, 2013.

    A fishing boat winds through icebergs and fog on its way to port in Ilulissat, Greenland. It's impressive to see the circuitous routes and patience sometimes required to make it into the harbor. When you're on a boat in this water, it feels a bit like you're in a game of bumper cars.
