    A crows next perspective taken from the mast top whilst sailing a traditional schooner through arctic sea ice, just off the east coast of Greenland. I have no problem with heights, but every movement of the boat is exaggerated on the mast top, it's quite the core workout!

    From Your Shot photographer Dina Humphreys: "The photo shows the sea of icebergs as they crush the side of this ship perspective of the small people scale on deck. The viewer eye slides down the mask to mid-ship. There is no wind. The sail are secured. The boat is dead in the water yet the life of the passionate sailors and the photographers on the deck is captured in this photo. Isolation of this boat in a open sea of ice also has adventure and danger. Wonderful photo!"
