Argentina - August 25th, 2011

Sediments from the Naposta Stream line the shores of Argentina near the city of Bahía Blanca. The irregularly shaped landform down the coast to the south is Peninsula Valdes.

Continuing down the coast in the full image, one crosses the San Jorge Gulf and can observe the shoreline as far as Ushuaia. Northeast of Ushuaia are the Falkland Islands (known in Argentina as the Islas Malvinas).
