Have you seen Geography Photos recently?

"Good quality, interesting photographic images are food and
drink to the teaching and learning of geography - this is why
the GA is pleased to be collaborating with GeographyPhotos.
We encourage all budding photographers out there to help

Handy hints when searching for images

If you search for a country name in www.google.co.uk under the images search, what you get is maps! The best lessons with internet maps are those which look at quality and ask pupils to compare them. 

 If you want good images sites of a particular country add the word images or photographs to the name of the country in a normal web search.

"How do Glaciers alter the Landscape?"

This is a visual treat from Dr Peter Knight of  Keele University.

A brilliant and a reminder that Geomorphology is about making sense of landscape change as well as disaster, death and destruction. He posed a good teaser.  What has Madeley, North Staffordshire  have to do with an ice dammed lake?  Peter has kindly recreated a virtual lecture on line.

Look out for some more images and a good guide to basal ice.  http://www.petergknight.com/glaciers/
