Atop an ice pressure ridge about 5 miles offshore. Point Hope Alaska in the distance. Shot with the Gigapan robot. 40 X 4 =160 frames. Dust spots removed with GIMP photo editor. Stitched with Giga Pan Stitcher. Took about 15 hours to upload this panorama on our super slow arctic internet. Plenty of snow in this shot, but that is what the arctic is all about. I have found three 'non-snow' items in the ice field. The Man on the 4 wheeler and two others. Not visible over the horizon about 3/4 the way from left to right the ice opens up and there are folks camping on the edge also called the 'lead'. An incredibly memorable trip and a nice big pano to share.
