Today’s Image of the Day from the European Space Agency features a captivating view of Saint George Basin along the northwestern coast of Australia. 

Located in the Kimberley region, the basin is surrounded by steep cliffs, tidal mud flats, and mangroves.

The Prince Regent River flows in a northwesterly direction into the basin, and just north of the river is the Prince Regent National Park.

The image was captured in June of 2009 by the Japanese Advanced Land Observation Satellite.
