Lake Tana, the largest lake in Ethiopia, is the source of the Blue Nile River. Here, its waters appear tan near its shores and more greenish towards the center.

This color difference near the shores may be due to sediments from the rivers that feed into the lake: the Lesser Abay, Reb and Gumara Rivers.

The lake is located in the country’s highlands, whose terrain appears reddish brown to the east, but more green and vegetated to the west.
