[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Snow and ice as far as I could see, hour after hour, in Siberia. Picture taken on a Finnair flight from Japan to Finland and Sweden. No climate changing and no melting ice, at least it will take time. And climate changing is nothing new on Earth. They have always been. If there is petrol under Antarcticas thick layer of ice, there must have been vegetation and animals once, or?

This is one of those occasions where you really want your plane to preform as required! This is truly a hostile environment, quite different from what most of us are used to. Thanks for sharing this amazing view.

Best Regards,


Hi Monica,
Thanks for sharing this great aerial view from your flight.
Interesting comments on the global warming issue..
The planet has been in warming and cooling patterns throughout its existence, and continents shifting.

Hi Monica. Good view from the plane with clear weather for you to see so much. Siberia is so wide, beyond comprehension to fly for so long. Agree that the plane needs to be reliable, would not want to land down there. Good notes too. TFS. Murray.
