China – September 17th, 2012

Exquisite patterns created by sediments and phytoplankton fill the Bohai Sea, the innermost gulf of the Yellow Sea, China. The Bohai Sea’s limits are marked by the Liaodong Peninsula (upper right) and Shandong Peninsula (lower right). The sediments in Liaodong Bay, west of the similarly named peninsula, are brown in color, while those in Bohai Bay, to the southwest, have a more golden hue and are flanked by green phytoplankton growth.
