Much like sites that you can rate items up or down, you can rate the best aerial photography via Google Earth screen shots.  There are some beautiful images and places to be discovered through this site.  The physical and human landscapes are both intermingled in this fantastic collection of images...be careful, it can be amazingly addictive.  Users can take there own screenshots to be included in the gallery, making this a user-based, participatory project.  For more from the producer of this site, see: http://paulrademacher.com

Deep Freeze Spreads Across Europe

Deep Freeze Spreads Across Europe | Global education = global understanding | Scoop.it
The frigid weather that plagued Eastern Europe much of last week spread westward over the weekend, grounding flights, snarling traffic, and causing hundreds of deaths...

 

This picture alone is a fantastic teaching resource.  I can see a great lesson structured around analyzing the physical and human geographic context within these landscapes (there are 39 additional images in the gallery).

these images are really striking, especially the landscapes with the icy/snowy architecture, i heard in another class that Japan recently got hit with about ten feet of snow, makes me feel fortunate weve only gotten six inches so far this winter

This is maddening. Global Warming is certainly not a myth, some of these places have never seen snow like this.

It's crazy how the cold effected this region.  I mean some of these pictures didnt een look they were real, they looked like something you would see on a postcard.  I think it would be cool at first to be there and see these images first hand, but with how cold it looks there i would probably be over it in about 10 minutes.

Read Religious architecture of Islam for travel tips, advice, news and articles from all around the world by Lonely Planet...

 

This is an excellent article that can be used in a thematic class for analyzing religion, the human landscape, the urban environment and cultural iconography.  For a regional geography class, this show great images from Indonesia, Spain, Egypt, Syria and Israel/Palestine.

Harbin Internat'l Ice and Snow Festival 2012

Harbin Internat'l Ice and Snow Festival 2012 | Global education = global understanding | Scoop.it
The annual Harbin International Ice and Snow Festival has been held since 1963, interrupted for a number of years during the Cultural Revolution until it was resumed in 1985. Harbin is the capital of Heilongjiang province, in northeastern China. 

 

Captured in this photoessay are grandiose, yet ephemeral landscapes.  Why construct these monumental landscapes?  Like the fleeting World Fair landscapes, how do they transform space and place?
