Kathiawar Peninsula and Surroundings, India
Reddish brown sediments flowing out of the Narmada (east) and Sabarmati (north) Rivers create streaks in India’s Gulf of Khambhat (formerly known as the Gulf of Cambay), an inlet of the Arabian Sea.
The Kathiawar Peninsula forms the western coast of the gulf. A range of low hills, known as the Gir Hills, occupies the south-central portion of the peninsula. The highest of these is Girnar.
The other side of the peninsula forms the eastern coast of the Gulf of Kutch. This gulf also contains an algal bloom, though there are fewer sediments. These are lighter and more golden brown in color, due to differences in soil content.
One close-up focuses on the rivermouths and gulfs, while the other focuses on an interesting cloud pattern visible to the south of the continent in the full image.
