Mexico – December 15th, 2012

Visible on the right side of this image is Lake Chapala, Mexico’s largest freshwater lake. The lake, which appears green in color here, lies in the municipalities of Chapala, Jocotepec, Poncitlán, and Jamay, in Jalisco, and in Venustiano Carranza and Cojumatlán de Régules, in Michoacán. Visible west of the lake is the Pacific Ocean, as well as Banderas Bay, appearing as a notched inlet along the coastline west of the lake.
