Russia - January 17th, 2011

The Angara River can be observed flowing through the Bratsk Reservoir (center right edge) and to the north, before bending to the west and cutting across the image, parallel to the top edge. Both the river and the reservoir appear white as they are frozen from the low Siberian winter temperatures.

The Angara is a 1,779 kilometer (1,105 mi) long river in Irkutsk Oblast and Krasnoyarsk Krai, south-east Siberia, Russia. It is the only river flowing out of Lake Baikal, and is a headwater of the Yenisei River.
