Argentina – December 2nd, 2012

A beautiful mix of colors from sediments and algal growth can be seen in the Rio de la Plata Estuary, between Argentina (below, left) and Uruguay (above, right): many different hues including dark brown, tan, greyish brown, green and blue are all present. Visible on the Argentine side is the country’s capital city, Buenos Aires, appearing as a large grey area. Montevideo, the capital of Uruguay, is visible further east, on the upper banks.
