Notes

image is cropped, the original is wider. f/5.6 1/750 sec. ISO 200 NOTE : I wrote COUNTRY location is Russia but the North Pole is free however you don't have the North Pole on your list of countries to choose from, so I chose Russian Federation because I left from Murmansk by icebreaker.

Description

on a cruise-expedition to the North Pole with the russian nuclear icebreaker " 50 LET POBEDY " ( 50 years of victory ), we arrived July 25, 2008 at precisely the North Pole, GPS showed latitude N 90.0000 . We stopped, had a BBQ, and some of us took a dive . Look at the diver's perfect 90° angle at N 90° latitude !
