BAHAMAS SATELLITE VIEW: 50 SHADES OF BLUE…

I’ve come across this dramatic view from space in several places online. I’ve recently been examining the shallows and underwater canyons of the Bahamas group of islands, and this NASA / ISSS map  perfectly illustrates, with natural colour shading, the greatly contrasting sea depths of the region. It also shows the extent of the long protective reefs, and clearly reveals underwater ‘high ground’ and ridges. There’s an almost abstract beauty about it, too, that’s worth sharing…

    • Hi Jody, yes, it’s pretty stunning / stunningly pretty both for colours and shapes. The NASA / ISSS images are always worth an explore to remind us of a beautiful world which we are, arguably, failing to look after properly. Make that ‘unarguably’… Happy New Year to you and your blog-kin!

      • Thank you. I’ve so enjoyed visiting your blog and learning about Abaco this year and I’m looking forward to more from one of my absolute favorite sites in 2013. Keep it coming. :-) All the best to you in the New Year!
