The rocky landscape and the snow of this island in an uninhabited archipelago north of mainland Russia made it an interesting place for a landing.
There is also a memorial in this panorama. See if you can find it. Otto Krisch of the Austro-Hungarian North Pole Expedition died on that endeavor and is buried here. The party left a note in a sealed container in a stone cairn, The letter describes their discovery of Franz Josef Land. The cairn marking his grave and the letter were discovered in 1991.
The 19 images of this panorama were photographed with a Nikon D80 and stitched with Autopano Pro. Please take a moment to look around.
