Lakes Winnipeg (right) and Winnipegosis (left) are centered in this true-color Aqua MODIS image of Canada's Manitoba Province captured on October 6, 2004. Surrounded by wetlands that give way to the boreal forest to the north and the Great Plains to the south, the lakes appear to be awash in sediment and possibly algae or other plant growth, as they are painted in shades of tan and pale green. Meanwhile, the wetlands are the unique brown-green color of fall that will eventually give way to the deep brown-blacks of winter.
