This image was taken with DigitalGlobe satellites on April 22, 2013 of the Colorado River in Utah. The image has been 'positioned' to give an interesting optical illusion – the river seems to be flowing at the top of a large mountain chain! Rotating the image by 180 degrees provides a more familiar viewpoint – the river actually rests in a valley, as expected.
