Nicely layered landscape! But I am surprised that not more is covered by snow and ice!

Like Franz, I'm surprised by the large area not under ice. Climate change at work perhaps.

@Steve Rice: Although the ice sheet is big, Greenland is bigger... Ice sheet covers 81% of area and leaves 400,000 km2 that is not covered.

Great contrast between the icy foreground and the rugged brown land in the background.
