True-colour satellite image of Bordeaux, France

Bordeaux. True-colour satellite image of Bordeaux (bottom right) and the Gironde estuary (lower right to upper centre), France. North is at top. Urban areas such as Bordeaux appear grey. Forests are dark green, grazing lands are light green and crops are mostly yellow. Bare ground appears pale yellow, pale brown or almost white. Bordeaux lies on the Garonne River just before it flows into the Gironde estuary. Variations in colour in the Bay of Biscay (left) are due to depth, currents and river discharges. The estuary makes Bordeaux accessible to ocean-going ships. Image taken by the American Landsat-5 satellite. The smallest visible features are 30 metres across

This print showcases the true colors of Bordeaux, France, as captured by the American Landsat-5 satellite. The image provides a bird's-eye view of Bordeaux and its surrounding areas, with the Gironde estuary stretching from the lower right to upper center. With north at the top, urban areas like Bordeaux appear in shades of grey, while lush forests stand out in deep green hues. Grazing lands are depicted in light green tones, and vibrant yellow patches indicate cultivated crops. The Garonne River gracefully flows through Bordeaux before merging into the Gironde estuary, making this picturesque city accessible to ocean-going ships. On the left side of the image lies the Bay of Biscay, displaying variations in color attributed to factors such as depth, currents, and river discharges.
