Argentina – October 14th, 2012

Sediments in the Río de la Plata give the estuary’s waters chocolate and toffee tones before dispersing into the deep waters of the Atlantic Ocean, off the coast of Argentina (below) and Uruguay (above). Visible along the shores of the estuary is the city of Buenos Aires, appearing as a large grey area amidst the otherwise green, vegetated landscape.
