Gorgeous Mississippi Delta

Let’s start the day with something pretty: yesterday’s MODIS/Aqua satellite image of the Gulf is one of the most beautiful views of the Mississippi Delta that I’ve ever seen. Tropical Storm Lee has just moved inland after drenching the coast, and the patterns of turbidity and sediment fringing the vibrant green vegetation are stunning. Wish I was down there fishing today!
