The Patagonia region of southern Argentina

Today’s Image of the Day from NASA Earth Observatory features an astronaut photograph of Lake Pueyrredón and Lake Posadas in the Patagonia region of southern Argentina. 

According to NASA, streaks on the lake surface are produced by the strong winds that are very common in the Patagonia region. 

The snow-covered foothills of the Andes Mountains are visible along the bottom of the photograph.
