Flying over the North Pole

On the way back from Japan our flight went over the North Pole as the sun was coming up. At first it wasn't really clear to me what I was looking at, but after taking a few pics on high ISO & massively increasing exposure it hit me that we were flying above ice.

This was a different route that the one we took when flying to Japan. As time elapsed and we got more sun I could increasingly see better the seemingly infinite arctic surface.

Found it really impressive to see, even from 35.000 feet in the air.
