Totally gratuitous

Some more satellite pr0n. Click to enlarge:

From the same image that was the source of Thursday's Petermann update, comes this selection, showing a swath of central Labrador in the Lake Melville and Sandwich Bay regions.

The built-up area of Happy Valley-Goose Bay is visible as a blue-green splotch. To the north, as far as Nipishish in the extreme top left, and east to the head of Double Mer, old burned areas show up as paler shades of green. Other large forest fire scares are noticeable southwest of Sandwich Bay, along the Paradise and Eagle Rivers.

In the centre, the barren Mealy Mountain tops are quite prominent, and to the west, the l0w-lying Maishes which cover the ground from the shores of Lake Melville east to the foot of the hills.

Puffy cumulus clouds show up as bright orange in this false-colour scheme, while white coastal fog dominates the outer reaches of Sandwich and Groswater Bays.

That’s all very interesting but “I don’t see any people of fences down there”.
Quote from then premier Clyde Wells after he choppered from VB to Nain back in the Diamond Field Resources days.
