N77006 (cn 29476/183) EWR-HKG. CO Flight 99. This flight took us directly over the geographical north pole. On this picture you can see the last bit of land before we reach the pack-ice. The view was stunning with snow and ice as far as one could see and a deep blue sky.

This is a prime reason why you should never be forced to put your shade down during flight like you are on some airlines. Absolutely stunning shot.

The most powerful commercial engine in the world powering the Boeing 777, the curve of the earth outside your window, and 40,000 feet above the most barren spot on earth. This photo has it all.

A visitor from Canada posted Sat September 5, 2009:
Cold, baron and natural. An amazing course but wouldn't want engine trouble!

The curve and flex of the wing, the size of the engine and the shear snow mass below

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun April 1, 2007:
Amazing depth & clarity !!

A visitor from United States posted Wed February 7, 2007:
What’s remarkable about this shot is how intriguing it is, both visually but also geographically. Literally, “going over the top”, this photographer captures what many seldom see on Earth.

A visitor from Singapore posted Mon November 20, 2006:
If only every city in the world could be so clean, clear, crisp and sharp. Thank You, Michael, for sharing an Absolutely Clear picture here.

A visitor from Brazil posted Thu August 3, 2006:
This picture is just so beautiful... And yet I know that pictures don't do justice to living the real thing.. My have been one hell of an experience.

The best Inflight Entertainment remains the look out of the window!

A visitor from Malaysia posted Wed July 12, 2006:
What a beautiful view of the ice caps! It is a salient reminder to us all that humanity has both the privilege of enjoying such pristine places and the responsibility of protecting them.

A visitor from United States posted Sun July 2, 2006:
A Very Well Done photo! You've captured the Cold and Barren region of the Northpole along with the cold and barren expanse of the mid to upper regions of our atmosphere. Notice that as you look to the upper portions of the photo the sky progressively gets darker and darker, thats because of the lack of atmosphere. Thus less reflection (blue) of the sunlight and the more blackness of space. COOL!

A visitor from Brazil posted Mon May 29, 2006:
Beatiful Mike... well done, man... keep the good job.

Wow! How many times do we have a chance to see the Pole from air?
Divine!
Let's hope no airplane crashes in that environment.

A visitor from Germany posted Tue March 21, 2006:
Incredable

A visitor from United States posted Tue March 14, 2006:
Great use of light, and captures the stark barren wilderness perfectly. The only thing I may have done differently would be to have maybe tilted the camera down just ever so slightly, so as to center the jet motor in the side frame better, and to make more of the land below visable. Not that I will ever get a shot like that! Kudos!

I love seeing that GE90! Beautiful shot of the ice spanning all the way to the horizon and a deep blue sky.

A visitor from Canada posted Fri January 27, 2006:
Great picture! One thing wrong with the details of the photo information: the geographical north pole is in Canada, therefore you were flying over Canadian airspace - not international as stated

A visitor from United States posted Thu January 26, 2006:
WOW! Those are very fancy picture with North Pole. It is very cold over in North Pole. Does anyone believe about the picture? They were heading to HKG over via North Pole. What is the temp below over in North Pole?

A visitor from Uruguay posted Thu January 26, 2006:
This is a wonderful shot, the combination between the power of that engine, with the magnificence of perpetual snow

A visitor from United States posted Sat January 21, 2006:
Well,you've got some scenery in this case. i also love pictures taken from great angles (such as this one) where you don't see everything... because it makes you use your imagination as to what the rest of it looks like. the fog inbetween looks great. but as for the backgroung going from white to black

A visitor from - posted Mon January 16, 2006:
Simply beautiful and the contrast between the colour of the sky and the snow is fabulous

The contrasts between the darker aircraft parts and the white snow below combined with a sense of vastness while you are sitting in a small confined space is what makes this picture a great shot.
