Caption: Suez Canal. Infrared SPOT satellite image of the southern end of the Suez Canal and the town of Suez in Egypt. North is towards the top. Water appears blue-black and vegetation red. The Red Sea (Gulf of Suez) appears in the south of the picture with the town of Suez on its northern shore. The Canal runs north into Little Bitter Lake and Great Bitter Lake (top left), where ships can be seen in the water. The Canal was built by French engineer Ferdinand de Lesseps and opened in 1869. It provides the fastest sea-route between Europe and Asia and is one of Egypt's major economic assets. Image taken by one of the French SPOT satellites.
