The Great Slave Lake is 480 km (300 mi) long and 19 to 109 km (12 to 68 mi) wide, covering an area of 27,200 km2 (10,502 sq mi) in the southern part of Canada’s Northwest Territories, making it the second-largest lake in that province.

Here, tan sediments are visible by the southern shores of the lake. Moving to the right, many islands can be seen in the East Arm of the lake. Several smaller lakes of various colors can be observed by the northwestern shores, while the land by the northeastern shores is partially covered by wave clouds.
