Panorama Beerenberg

Haakon VII Top­pen is the high­est peak of Beeren­berg with 2277 m above sea lev­el. Most of Jan Mayen, up to maybe 700 m, is hid­den under a cloud cov­er. Only the high­est peaks of Sør Jan, as the south­ern part of Jan Mayen is called, are vis­i­ble, and of course the majes­tic Beeren­berg itself. The cen­tral crater has a diam­e­ter of about 1.5 kilo­me­tres and it is filled by a glac­i­er, which is flow­ing out of the crater to the north­west, form­ing Weyprecht­breen which is reach­ing down to the coast and calv­ing into the sea.

This panora­ma was done free­hand on June 21st, 2015, dur­ing the first ascent of Beeren­berg by any­one not work­ing at the sta­tion after 2011, when the rules were tight­ened. As far as I know, it is the first 360 degree panora­ma tak­en on the top of Beerenberg.
