Two bodies of water can be observed in this APM image: the Churchill River (below) and Little Lake (above), both located in the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador.

The Churchill River flows eastward across the province and into the Atlantic Ocean via Lake Melville. The river is 856 km (532 mi) long and drains an area of 79,800 km2 (30,800 sq mi). In this false-colored image, it appears to change color suddenly from dark green to bright yellow at a part where it widens substantially.
