France – April 15th, 2011

Sediments from the Dordogne and Garonne Rivers turn the waters of the Gironde Estuary, on the west coast of France, a tan color.

The Gironde is a navigable estuary (often falsely referred to as a river), in southwest France and is formed from the meeting of the two aforementioned rivers just below the centre of Bordeaux (visible as a grey area near the bottom edge).
