Mauritania - March 30th, 2011

Sediments and algal growth give a bright green color to the waters of the Bay of Arguin (or Banc d’Arguin), on the Atlantic shore of Mauritania.

The bay is south of Cap Blanc, north of Cap Timiris, and contains the islands of Arguin (above) and Tidra (below). Both are best observed in the full image. Tidra is the largest island in the bay, at 18 miles long and 5 miles wide.
