USA – April 22nd, 2013

Sediments give the waters of Lake Erie a greenish tinge, in comparison to the deeper blue of the other North American Great Lakes. Despite some cloud cover, the outline of the northern section of Lake Michigan is visible due to superimposed borders recreated in the satellite imagery. Visible further south are the ridges of the Appalachian Mountains, which stretch from the southern USA to the northeastern part of the country.
