The long, thick, navy blue curved line through the center of this image is the Krasnoyarskoye Reservoir on the Yenisei River, in Russia. The reservoir is one of the largest man-made lakes of river origin in Siberia.

It is situated in Russia’s Krasnoyarsky District. In this image, taken in summer, the Siberian landscape is free of snow and has varying shades of green. The drainage basin of the reservoir covers three natural zones, forest, forest-steppe and steppe, located in the eastern part of the Sayan Altai mountain range. The forest areas are darker green, while the steppes are brownish in color.
