I certainly haven't seen a shot like this, though I am a little familiar with the phenomenon it depicts and this shot is certainly good enough to show very well periglacial terrain as seen from the air. As this is unusual, interesting and well described in your note, I would say this is an excellent contribution to TN and I thank you for that!

I agree with Ivan, this is a very interesting presentation! I really have to say, that as for the first view I had no idea what is on the photo. At first I strated to think that maybe it is a picture taken with microscope and here we have some plant cells or something similar :)
But fortunatelly this is another picture thanks to which I could learn something new again :)
Many thanks and best greetings,

I agree; this is a wonderful aerial view of the processes taking place on a delta in Canada.
The patterns are interesting and look nice in this shot. Never mind the quality; after all, it is a scan.
Thanks for sharing this image of a phenomenon one cannot see as a matter of routine.
The note is very helpful here.

Very interesting note and capture James, it looks like a patchwork quilt. Thanks for sharing.
What a interesting phenomena warm and cold temperatures can have on our planet to create such a unique pattern. I've never seen this type of landscape before. Your notes are informative.
PS I think this effect happens to our roads in Calgary...pot holes everywhere LOL!

Great documentation shot of this occurence.I hear reports that the permafrost is actually starting to come out of the ground ,causing real problems for settlements that don't have foundations.The challenges that this new wrinkle of global warming is going to be immense.TFS this is a unique and interesting post.
