    Reported by:

    Kivalina, Alaska, USA Coastal arctic communities are at risk for becoming climate refugees, due to rising sea levels, lack of sea ice for protection against winter storms, and erosion. Their livelihood is also at stake with changes in animal migration patterns and the waters they rely on for fishing and whaling becoming contaminated with the world's garbage. This picture was taken on a short walk from where I was staying.

    Subtle cold colors. A quiet scene. A mood and sense of place. A serious issue. An open-ended story. you say it was a short walk but so worth it.
