Metadata Updated: November 14, 2018

Oblique images snapped from a Canon Rebel 3Ti with a Sigma zoom lens (18-200mm focal length), a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200 (24x superzoom with variable focal length) and a Panasonic Lumix DMC-SZ7 (10x superzoom with variable focal length) of the arctic landscape during low altitude transects.
