Passage to India by Way of the Artice Circle

I flew Jet Airways, aka United from San Francisco to Hong Kong and then on to Delhi on the real Jet Airways. The first leg of the trip, 13 hours and 30 minutes in the air, took us over Alaska, Russia, Japan and then to China. Passing over the artic circle I was able to get this shot of the ice. The image looks like a Magritte painting. I don't know if these cracks are due to global warming or are just the natural formations in the ice. Regardless, it was a view of the Earth I've never before seen.
