Padloping Island from 30,000 feet. In Nunavut, Canada

Flying from London to San Francisco I took this shot as we were passing over the beginnings of Nunavut.


I can't imagine how cold that water must be. The ice structures hanging off the larger Padloping island that look like Austrian curtains are particular interesting.


Shot in Raw with kit lens through a scratched window. I'm lucky that it came out so clear.
