I took this picture from the North End of the city of Khatanga, Russia, Siberia.  I used the maximum zoom that I could get.  The Russians did not like us to take any pictures of the airplanes, but I had to get some.  Once we left Khatanga and went north to Sredney Island, the Russians didn't care what we took pictures of.
