India - May 2nd, 2011

The Krishna River can be seen flowing across Andhra Pradesh, in India. It is one of the longest rivers in the country, at about 1,300 kilometres (810 mi) in length.

Ecologically, this is one of the disastrous rivers in the world, in that it causes heavy soil erosion during the monsoon season. Here, sediments in the river give it a tan color, while in the full image, sun glint causes some segments to have a golden glow.
