USA - February 10th, 2011

Some sediments can be seen near the southeastern shores of Lake Michigan, USA. Much of the rest of the shoreline visible here is framed by ice, and the land nearby is snow-covered.

In the full image, Lake Michigan can be observed completely, and three other Great Lakes are visible (from left to right): Lake Huron, Lake Erie and Lake Ontario. All of the lakes show some ice covering, although Lake Erie is less frozen than its neighbors. Several of the Finger Lakes in New York State also stand out as unfrozen parallel navy lines amidst the snowy landscape.
