Russia – September 26th, 2012

Visible at the top center of this image is Bolshoy Lyakhovsky Island, or Great Lyakhovsky, the largest of the Lyakhovsky Islands belonging to the New Siberian Islands. The archipelago is located between the Laptev Sea and the East Siberian Sea in northern Russia. Here, the surrounding sea waters appear greenish, probably due to sediments. The peninsula projecting towards the west of the island is the Kigilyakh Peninsula. Off Bolshoy Lyakhovsky Island’s southwestern cape lies a small islet called Ostrov Khopto-Terer.
