Argentina - March 18th, 2011

A group of artificial reservoirs in the province of Neuquén, Argentina can be observed near the confluence of the Neuquén River (above) and the Limay River (below). Situated at their confluence is the city of Neuquén.

The largest of the lakes, showing a bright turquoise section, was created by the El Chocón Dam. The pair of lakes to the north this reservoir are part of the Cerros Colorados Complex; the western one of the pair is slightly more green in color than its neighbor. Finally, the small lake to the east of the former two is called Pellegrini Lake.
