The southern part of Manitoba Province, Canada, is home to many lakes. The largest visible here is Lake Winnipeg (right), mirrored to the west by a series of three lakes: Cedar Lake (left, above), Lake Winnipegosis (left, center) and Lake Manitoba (left, below).

The first close-up focuses on the southern reaches of Lake Winnipeg and Lake Manitoba. The former is tan with sediments, darker brown along the eastern shores; the latter appears bright green. The city of Winnipeg, Manitoba’s capital, is visible below the lakes, surrounded by fields and pastureland.

The second close-up shows the upper reaches of Cedar Lake (bottom) and Lake Winnipeg (right) and the many smaller lakes north of them. These lakes vary in color from lime green to turquoise to dark green.
