This Sentinel-2A ‘color vision’ image captures part of the Mississippi swamps on the east and west banks of the Mississippi River, west of New Orleans and north of the Mississippi Delta. The red color shows vegetation, while gray represents bodies of water.

The image shows typical French-style fields, with rows of sugarcane, around the Louisiana towns of Lucy, Edgard and Wallace. On the east bank of the Mississippi lie additional Louisiana towns of LaPlace, Reserve, Lions, Garyville and Mount Airy, each with industries along the river, including a chemical plant, sugar refinery, grain elevators and an oil refinery.

Toward the upper-left part of the image, under the clouds, lies Baton Rouge, the capital of Louisiana and its second-largest city. The port of Baton Rouge is the ninth largest in the United States in terms of tonnage shipped.
