Brazil - May 8th, 2012

The northern coastline of Brazil is framed by bright green and blue sediments, probably accompanied by phytoplankton growth. Areas of “popcorn” clouds hang over the landscape near the coast – these clouds tend to form above photosynthesizing plants. Visible in the lower left corner is the bright green reservoir created by the Sobradinho Dam on the São Francisco River in the state of Bahia.
