Clay's "Pic of the Day!" Not sure if I did this one already; but know my Tweeps will tell me! Go for it!

es una mezcla de admiracion y poesia lo que veo..
The beauty of a blue petunia or maybe even a blue Calla Lilly. Thanks @astro_clay! These brighten our days here on Earth.
The "Sugarland Express" got this one nicely...it is near Vilankulos in Mozambique, Africa. The colors are, simply put, spectacular!!!
Thanks Astro Clay. Here's a summary I wrote to explain what's in the image. http://bit.ly/gesfM9
@djsheptx The US coast is full of such features, searching at high resolution then … painful ;-)
@PC0101 Your "hint" caused me to search Australia first :-) but when I didn't find it there, I decided to give Africa a try,even without seeing your tweet to Pam. The topo looked cold and remote, which narrowed down the places to look...like Africa :-)
@PC0101 Thanks for the tip...you sved me a lot of searching the coast of USA!
Orbits repeat and so the scenes repeat. Particularly when they are so impressive. Almost identical. http://twitpic.com/1o5tjw
@djsheptx How come? Searching Africa at random, what if Australia? Or seen my tweet to Pam with the link to the Soichi pic? ;-))
WOW @djsheptx ! wonderful! head on!
Near Vilankulos in Mozambique.
Also small airstrip and a few roads. Looking at Google Earth...lots of karst in lots of places.
@pamkstewart Found it. Quite a different continent, each of the guesses is FAR off …
New to me too. These are patterns of sand on the seabed, illuminated by sunlight from above. Dark blue streaks are due to underwater currents making the sea deeper (and appear darker).
Looks like karst topography so I'd go with Florida...though I can't find it, also karst in Texas :-o
mm...mmm...I think this is totally new Mr. Clay!
patagonia??? ;-) ...amazing !!!
