Russia - August 4th, 2010

Despite its dark blue color, the body of water in the upper left quadrant is known as the White Sea. It is an inlet of the Barents Sea on the northwest coast of Russia. It is surrounded by Karelia to the west, the Kola peninsula to the north, and the Kanin Peninsula to the northeast.

Two other bodies of water can also be observed to the south: Lake Onega and Lake Ladoga (lower left corner). The skies over these lakes appear slightly hazy due to smoke from wildfires in other parts of Russia (click here for previous articles).
