Papua New Guinea - December 11th, 2008

Sediments and sun glint reflecting off the water give a good view of a river running through the Owen Stanley Mountain Range in Papua New Guinea.

The sun glint also creates a sharp contrast between the sea and the coastline, making the contours of the latter stand out, particularly along the southern coast with the Coral Sea and the peninsula to the North.

When the full image is opened part of a coral reef can also be seen in the lower left corner.
