Canada - July 22nd, 2010

This orthorectified image shows the western half of Lake Claire,  the largest lake situated entirely in Alberta, Canada. The lake has a total area of 1,436 km2 (554 sq mi), with 21 km2 (8 sq mi) island area, and lies at an elevation of 213 m (699 ft).

It lies between the mouths of Peace River and Athabasca River, and is part of the Peace-Athabasca Delta system. Here, the Jackfish River can be seen in the upper left corner, with large meandering curves.

Upon opening the full image, many other lakes can be seen to the south. Some areas of hills or ravines can be seen between Lake Claire and these other smaller lakes.
