Guinea-Bissau West Africa
Amazing NASA Desktop Wallpaper

I am really enjoying the NASA images that are taken from Satellites. This next NASA stunner description reads:

"The Landsat 7 image of Guinea-Bissau, a small country in West Africa, shows the complex patterns of the country's shallow costal waters, where silt is carried by the Geba and other rivers washes out into the Atlantic Ocean. This is a false-color composite image made using infrared, red and blue wavelengths to bring out details in the silt was taken using Landsat 7's Enhanced Thematic Mapper plus (ETM+) sensor on January 12, 2000."

If you click on the first image below it will give you an image that is 1600 x 1600 pixels. For those of you who have the amazing new Apple 27inch iMac or a widescreen, I prepared a stunning higher resolution version which is 2560 x 1440.

It's fascinating how similar this image looks to some kind of living organism–and of course, it is–if you think about it!!!
