Canada - May 18th, 2011

Several lakes are visible in this image of the border area by southern Manitoba, Canada (above) and northern USA (below), particularly the states of Minnesota (right) and North Dakota (left).

Visible in Manitoba at the upper edge are the lower parts of Lake Manitoba (left), bright green from sediments and algae, and Lake Winnipeg (right), considerably darker in color.

Near the right edge, are Lake of the Woods (above) and Red Lake (below). The former occupies parts of the Canadian provinces of Ontario and Manitoba and the U.S. state of Minnesota. It separates a small land area of Minnesota from the rest of the United States.

Red Lake is a lake in Beltrami County in northern Minnesota, USA. It is the largest natural freshwater lake in Minnesota. The lake is separated into two sections by a peninsula on the eastern side that almost bisects it in the middle. The lake has a total surface area of 1,148.779 kmĀ² (443.546 sq mi). Despite its name, Red Lake, like its neighbor to the north, appears dark blue in color.
