I need some help with how to properly label some of my photos with regards to the location they were taken. I am a bush pilot in Canada's North, and we often fly to un-named lakes. The photo below is an example.
I have been asked by the screeners to change the "unknown" location on this one, and not to use it on future uploads. I know exactly where the photo was taken, but how can I label it when the lake has no name? Can I use "off airport" without any description after it? Can I reference another nearby lake?

What about showing the approximate GPS latitude/longitude coordinates plus the country and province/territory, perhaps also the approximate distance/direction from the nearest significant airport and its IATA/ICAO codes?
Example: Unnamed lake, Canada, Northwest Territories, x deg. N, y deg. W, approx. 200 nm NE of Yellowknife (YZF/CYZF).
If necessary, som of that could go in the photo caption/description rather than in the location field.

"Off-Airport - near Rebesca Lake" or "Off-Airport - Rebesca Lake area" or some other similar should be fine. "Off-Airport - Unnamed Lake" would be possible as well, but would be a less desirable option.
