  STS056-080-009 Avalon Peninsula, Newfoundland, Canada April 1993
Even though this synoptic view of the Avalon Peninsula, the southeastern appendage to Newfoundland Island, does not show any detailed landform information, fjords along the coastline and the general landscape show the results of the continental ice sheet that scoured and covered this region thousands of years ago. The small white patches are frozen, snow covered lakes. This image provides an opportunity to discriminate the difference between the sea ice floes (the distinctive pattern of white swirls off of the east coast of the Avalon Peninsula) and the low stratus clouds over Placentia Bay (upper left corner of image) and St. Mary's Bay (left of center).
