Image of the Day: A Majestic View of Florida Bay

Heavy winds blew across the Florida Bay in early January, stirring the waters and contributing to this dazzling array of color. Clouds of milky blue and green fill the shallower waters; near the southern coast, the waters are distinctly tan from a run-off of particulates from land. Further south, near the Florida Keys, abundant coral reefs mean the water is rich in calcite, which when disturbed lends it a milky appearance
