Caption: Nantes. True-colour satellite image of the city of Nantes (centre right), France, and the surrounding area. North is at top. Urban areas are grey/pale blue, vegetation is green and water is blue, while bare ground and sand are white. The city of Saint- Nazaire lies on the north side of the Loire Estuary (upper left) where the River Loire, which flows through Nantes, opens out into the Bay of Biscay. The lighter blue of the water near to the coast is the result of sediment in the water. The oddly-shaped Noirmoutier Island (Ile de Noirmoutier) is at lower left. Nantes, which is surrounded by numerous agricultural fields, is a major port and manufacturing centre.
