Another view of Greenland from 33,000 feet. We passed by around mid-day local
time, so the shadows give you an idea of just how far north we were. Very cool.

One of my most satisfying window seats ever. The return trip from Frankfurt to LA
had us go up over Greenland. My first time ever for seeing glaciers, icebergs and
the frozen sea. I am not sure why it is called Greenland, because the roughly 2,000
miles we traversed was almost nothing but snow and ice. I was blessed with being on
the right side of the plane (literally) and having a mostly cloud-free view.
(Not the case as we passed by Iceland)

great to see the ground and the shadow, nicely done in capturing without reflection and still have nice clarity and sharpness

Literally, so very cool! :) I really like the tall peak shadow in this one - so different looking than the actual formation. What an experience for you and us!

Very interesting, as usually. V.
