Canada – January 26th, 2013

James Bay, a southeasterly extension of Hudson Bay, in Canada, appears covered in ice in this winter image. The surrounding land and Akimiski Island (near the western shores of the bay), the largest island in the bay and an important coastal wetland and waterfowl habitat, are covered in snow. Several rivers can be seen through the snow, flowing across Ontario and into the bay.
