Over the Icy North

Canada & Greenland

One of the least-promoted aspects of any trip to Europe is that you also get a tour of the sub-polar regions for no extra charge -- for many of us, our only chance to see glaciers and icebergs.

The top shot is Mt. Rainier near Seattle, not exactly sub-polar, but I was so impressed at the way it towered above the other mountains I was watching -- practically scraping the bottom of our 777 -- that I had to shoot it.

The second is a glacier somewhere in Canada. (No doubt receding.)

The third is a drifting ice pack, somewhere between Greenland and Iceland, in the pre-dawn light.
