Remark Photographer
G-CIVK (cn 25818/1104) En-route LHR-LAX. We had been airbourne 3 hours 10 mins with cloud cover beneath us. Then we had a 40 minute break in the clouds and what a sight! Perfect trip, 1st 744 flight, 1st visit to LAX and the amazing ice fields too! Dedicated to my 'Fox'

I swear the RB211s are shrinking in old age. They used to look so much bigger!!!

A visitor from United States posted Fri December 5, 2014:

A visitor from Mexico posted Thu December 4, 2014:
This creates an optical illusion to me. The ice is so detailed that it makes me feel that it is so much closer to the airplane that it really is. Very beautiful photo.

A visitor from - posted Sun March 9, 2014:
The main reason this is such an appealing image is that we get stunning, razor sharp scenery of fascinating terrain from high above but without a big, fat wing cutting across the picture (and no watermark, either, of course).

This is what drives this image to 5 big stars and beyond. Thank you so much.

A visitor from - posted Sat July 13, 2013:
Excellent composition and clarity. The contrast of the RR engines & the frozen landscape below is very effective.

A visitor from China posted Fri June 28, 2013:
Wow!pretty different from what i've seen on the flight from HK to NY.what a white arcitc!

This is one of the so many reasons why flying is indeed exciting and a pleasure.

A visitor from United States posted Fri November 4, 2011:
"Greenland". lol Amazingly beautiful!

A visitor from - posted Thu November 3, 2011:
Is it just me or those engines are shrinking???

A visitor from - posted Thu August 18, 2011:
On route from Moscow to Habana, we fly over Greenland too. Fabulous sceneries!!!

A visitor from Germany posted Wed May 25, 2011:
Definitely Greenland! Nevertheless - awesome shot!

A visitor from Germany posted Tue March 15, 2011:
I would also say that after 3 hours flight time it is most probably Greenland underneath and not Canada.

A visitor from United States posted Wed March 9, 2011:
Id say Nunavut

A visitor from - posted Sat February 26, 2011:
I think itis somwhere over greenland

A visitor from - posted Fri January 28, 2011:
Feels like you can reach out and touch the ice!! 5* shot!!

A visitor from Finland posted Tue January 18, 2011:
It reveals the truth of winter:It is cold.

A visitor from Finland posted Thu December 9, 2010:
Wow, that's breathtaking! more than 5*

A visitor from - posted Sat September 11, 2010:
5 stars for sure! Very nice shot of a wonderful view. Congratulations from Brazil

A visitor from United Arab Emirates posted Mon June 28, 2010:
5 stars because its beautiful and tha fact that the picture was taken the day I was married........

A visitor from Mexico posted Tue June 22, 2010:
A view of Heaven!! Wow!!

My god, if I were you I would never look away from the window until the clouds come back.... truly remarkable.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed March 3, 2010:
Brilliant shot! Bear Gryll is down there!!:)

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue February 16, 2010:
Outstanding... a genuine top drawer landscape image... raw nature below, being defied by RR engines above

A visitor from United States posted Sun December 6, 2009:
Such detail in the ice!

A visitor from - posted Fri December 4, 2009:
A truly incredible sight, and great work for capturing it to share with the world.

A visitor from Portugal posted Sun November 29, 2009:
Wonderful! Quite interesting the reg CIVK. I flew on this aircraft on the route LAX-LHR in March 2008.

A visitor from - posted Sun November 29, 2009:
I've seen this same view as well, GLA-EWR via Continental 757-200. I seem to like this pic better though, because there were no ice flows when i traveled over Greenland. Very nice. 5 stars.

A visitor from - posted Sun November 29, 2009:
Beautiful picture - better enjoy the ice while we still can!

A visitor from Brazil posted Sun November 29, 2009:
What a wonderful world !

A visitor from Germany posted Sun November 29, 2009:
An awesome view you captured there! I wonder when this landscape will completely disappear...

A visitor from - posted Sun November 29, 2009:
Gorgeous. your never going to be able to see this cold and desolate beauty in any other way. i agree, look up from your screen and take a peek at the north pole for heavens sake. don't get to see it everyday...

A visitor from Hong Kong posted Sun November 29, 2009:
Wow...what a view! love the openness

A visitor from United States posted Sun November 29, 2009:
Oh my gosh, the ice is melting...GLOBAL WARMING!! LOL. Funny Al Gore. A very good picture indeed.

A visitor from United States posted Sat November 28, 2009:
Glorious... I pity the travelers that pull the window-shade down, go to sleep, and miss views like this.

A visitor from United States posted Sat November 28, 2009:
Wow! This is beautiful.
