Pick of the pics

Small but beautiful Guinea-Bissau


This image, which was taken by the Landsat satellite on 1 December, 2000, shows Guinea-Bissau, a small country in West Africa. Complicated patterns can be seen in the shallow waters along its coastline, where silt carried by the Geba and other rivers washes out into the Atlantic Ocean.
