Brazil - June 6th, 2010

Two large lagoons are visible here, near the Atlantic coast of southern Brazil. Both are brown in color due to sediments, although Lagoa dos Patos is a lighter tan, while its neighbor to the south, Lagoa Mirim, is greyish.

Lagoa dos Patos, translated to Lagoon of the Ducks in English, is located in the Brazilian state of Rio Grande do Sul. Lagoa Mirim, also known as Laguna MerĂ­n in Spanish and translated to Mirim Lagoon in English, extends from the southern part of Rio Grande do Sul into eastern Uruguay.
