City of St. John’s

St. John's, Newfoundland harbourfront

Offshore supply vessels dock at the old port in  St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada. Billed as the “Oldest City in North America” it was once the cross roads of trans-Atlantic shipping, communications and  fishing commerce. Now its economy is driven as the base of operations for the offshore oil and gas industry in the northwest Atlantic ocean. Photo by Greg Locke © 2013 (click photo enlarge)

I just posted my photo essay Welcome to Iceberg Alley  in the GEO section.  A collection of photos and a look at how the people of Newfoundland live, study,  work, and make the most of these floating ice giants that come from the melting glaciers of Greenland and the Canadian arctic every spring. Behind it all is the underlying knowledge that it’s all because of a changing climate.

The Photo-Essay can be accessed with a $1 day pass for the entire site, or by subscription.
