Frozen Ocean Waves in Ice Fog

Its gotten too cold now to even go outside, and that from someone who was out there yesterday in this! On the right is the frozen Arctic ocean, and the rocks on the left and center were brought here in an attempt to stop the erosion of the bank. They were brought in on barges and placed along the shoreline and have helped stop the erosion. Barrow isn't so luck and they have lost 20 feet of beach and may have to move the school and some other buildings. Climate change is real up here and is having a devastating affect on both humans and wildlife. Not a great photo, but it does show the ruggedness and the ice fog that surrounds us right now.
Awesome photo. Definitely depicts cold.

@milaniet Thank you Milanie. It could be a photo for the one hour blue photo challenge, I think. Its funny as that challenge is just a way of life up here. We are only having about an hour of twilight a day now, moving into total darkness, until the sun starts to wind around the horizon again in late January. When it first rises, I'll be able to see it from my classroom... will probably have a mini melt down. So weird not to see it for the last two weeks.

Fascinating to see your photo and read your commentary. I cant begin to imagine what it must be like to live under these conditions, I guess that noone would be disrespecting nature in the same way as they do in lesser extremes. I think you have captured the meaning of the word Climate.

@helenhall Thanks, Helen. What I find fascinating, as well, is that the people up here would not choose to live anywhere else. Home is home. And, so true, the people have to live so closely in tune with nature, weather, animal migrations, etc. to live here. Mistakes often mean death. Every family knows the pain of death. I have never been in such a rugged climate before. I'd really like to come up here in the spring and see what it would be like then.

What an amazing shot to accompany your story. It looks scary -- and reading your comment to Helen above emphasis the life-threatening nature of such cold. TAKE CARE!
