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)

I think your plane flew over Pluto without you knowing it.

And yet another unique shot in this series. I like how this one is so stark and clean looking. Great composition as well.
