This beautiful photograph from space shows the contrast between islands,
clouds, shallow water and deep water of the Bahamas (25.0N, 76.5E). The
Bahama Islands of Nassau (the smaller island) and Eleuthera are at the edge
of the Bahama Bank where the water is shallow revealing the bottom in pale
blue detail contrasted to the dark depths of the Exuma Sound where the
bottom is over a thousand feet deep.
