Cold Scapes - December 2007 issue...
The National Geographic website has a wealth of material to support the magazine.

In Summer of 1987, I treated myself to a book. I'd just finished my PGCE course, and a few months later started my teaching career. The book was Barry Lopez's seminal "Arctic Dreams". Earlier this year, I treated myself to a book Lopez edited: "Home Ground". So my teaching career has been bracketed and punctuated by Barry's books...
The DECEMBER edition of the magazine features an article called COLD SCAPES by Barry Lopez. The article is great, and describes PERMAFROST landscapes.
You can read it by clicking the link above.
You can also see some more of Bernhard's great IMAGES, including a great one of a PINGO on the infamously named TUKTOYAKTUK peninsula.

On a related issue, can I also recommend catching up with an article that was in the Society Guardian earlier in the week. It was written by the mountaineer Stephen Venables, and is called ON THINNING ICE, illustrating his experiences of melting ice, and also featured a striking Spencer Tunick image, someone else I've mentioned before in the blog (I was going to volunteer for this photo shoot, but I got cold feet... joke...)
