Florida Peninsula From Shuttle
Photograph - Photograph
Shuttle photograph of the Florida peninsula showing marked reflections of the sun in the Atlantic and the lakes within the wetlands of central Florida. The sunglint is crossed by the shadow of an east-west band of clouds and it also highlights regions of shears in the surface waters off the east coast (presumed to be related to the Gulf Stream). The view looks to the east and goes as far north as Georgia/South Carolina at the upper left. The Great Bahama Bank is visible as a light blue patch, indicating the shallower water, on the far right, just off the tip of the peninsula.
