Photographer's Note

Flying at 10209 m 33500 feet at N80.33849 W70.19418, this is the East Coast of the Elesmere Island deep in the Arctic region, the broad channel in the right is the Nares Strait between Elesmere Island and Greenland. Large mountain areas without any snow, glaciers ending in the middle of their way to the sea and instead of frozen sea, just many smaller icebergs on the wonderfully blue sea. This seemed to be a shocking evidence of Global Warming. Many sea farers were looking some hundreds years ago for the Northern Passage. Their ships often had to staty over winter as they were caught in the freezing ice.
