The Lorian Swamp

The Lorian Swamp - Earth As Art image of Kenya

Detailed Description

Water flowing out of this inland delta rarely reaches the ocean; instead, it seeps into the semiarid plains of northeastern Kenya. The dark feature in the upper left, which looks like a black eye, is hard basaltic rock from an ancient lava flow.
