Located on the eastern coast of Greenland is the village of Ittoqqortoormiit with a population of around 400. The village sits on the Scoresbysund which during the winter months freezes over with sea ice. The village was founded almost one hundred years ago and sits above the Arctic Circle. The buildings within the town are colorful as this image shows looking out towards the sound and a large iceberg flowing out. Initially buildings were painted colors to represent what you could find in the village as it would help out those traveling. This is no longer the case, but many nordic villages can be found with colorful buildings.
