Canada - April 15th, 2011

Snow dusts the Canadian landscape around the Gulf of Saint Lawrence. The lower reaches of the gulf appear brownish in color due to the influx of sediments from the Saint Lawrence River.

Sediments can also be observed in the Bay of Fundy (lower right quadrant), although the shores around it are mostly snow free.

A third notable body of water, the frozen, ring-shaped Manicouagan Reservoir, can be observed at the top center, north of the Gulf of Saint Lawrence.
