Greenish grey sediments color the waters of Tampa Bay (upper left quadrant), on the west coast of Florida, USA. Upon opening the full image, several long bridges can be seen as grey lines crossing the bay.

A second large indentation on the coast, the Charlotte Harbor Estuary, can be observed by the bottom center. It is filled with slighter lighter colored sediments. The cities of Port Charlotte and Fort Myers are located near its shores.

The Everglades at the tip of the Florida Peninsula, USA, appear an intense, dark green color near the shore and brownish further inland, while the waters around them and the islands of the Florida Keys are bright teal.

Moving from the southwest to the southeast coast, the city of Miami and other nearby urban areas appear greyish in color. The cities of Port Charlotte and Fort Myers can be observed on the opposite coast, also appearing as a greyish tan area, by the Charlotte Harbor Estuary. Between the two coastal urban areas, Lake Okeechobee can be noted, partially covered by white clouds.
