USA - November 9th, 2010

Although most of the coastline of the state of Florida is framed by greenish sediments, they are particularly concentrated in and around the Everglades, at the southern tip of the peninsula.

Visible north of the Everglades is a large, rounded, dark blue body of water: Lake Okeechobee. The city of Miami and its surrounding urban conglomeration can be observed along the east coast between the lake and the everglades.
