France, from Paris to Bordeaux and the Gironde Estuary

October 18th, 2010 Category: Rivers

France - October 13th, 2010

Although the northern coast of France is mostly lined by clouds, the western coast can be observed clearly. Sediments are visible along much of the shoreline, the majority of which are being released by the Dordogne and Garonne Rivers, pouring first into the Gironde Estuary and then into the Atlantic Ocean.

The city of Bordeaux can be seen at the base of the estuary. Further up the coast, the city of Nantes can be seen on the Loire River. Finally, moving inland to the northeast, the city of Paris is visible on the River Seine. These cities all appear as grey areas on the otherwise green and tan terrain.
