Today’s Image of the Day comes thanks to the NASA Earth Observatory and features a look at the Apostle Islands of Lake Superior.

The Apostle Islands National Lakeshore consists of 21 different islands in Lake Superior off the northern tip of Wisconsin.

This photo was captured by the Operational Land Imager (OLI) on board Landsat 8.

The Apostle Islands are also known for their famous lighthouses. “Within the boundaries of Apostle Islands National Lakeshore is the largest and finest single collection of lighthouses in the country,” author F. Ross Holland wrote in Great American Lighthouses.
