USA - January 17th, 2011

White snow highlights the hooked shape of Cape Cod, a peninsula cape in the easternmost portion of the state of Massachusetts, in the Northeastern United States. The peninsula is now, in fact, an island, due to the construction of the Cape Cod Canal through its isthmus.

Visible to the south of the Cape are two islands: Martha’s Vineyard (left) and Nantucket (right). While some parts of the former are dusted with snow, the latter appears snow free.
