Canada - September 24th, 2010

Golden sediments spill from the mouth of the Nelson River into the Hudson Bay, giving the bay’s southwestern shores a golden lining. The river drains Lake Winnipeg and flows across the Canadian province of Manitoba for 644 km (400 miles) before empyting into the bay.

Upon opening the full image, many small lakes can be seen dotting the landscape south of the bay, both east and west of the river. Also visible is the western shoreline of the bay, which is sediment-free.
