Lake Erie (below), one of the North American Great Lakes, is full of greenish swirls from sediments. Lake Huron (above) also shows some sediments along the coast, but the waters further away from the shoreline are much clearer.

Visible between the two great lakes is the smaller Lake St. Clair, also containing swirls of sediments. The city of Detroit, Michigan, USA, can be seen west of the lake. The land to its east, on the other hand, belongs to the province of Ontario, Canada.
