The U.K.-administered Turks and Caicos Islands in the northern Caribbean (map) create a scene of abstract beauty in a false-color satellite picture taken by the NASA/USGS Landsat 7 orbiter. The shot is part of a set of Landsat 7 images released Tuesday called the Earth as Art 3 collection. (See more Earth as Art 3 pictures.)
As seen in the picture, the islands (red) lie primarily along the northern edge of the submerged Caicos Bank (turquoise). The bank is a shallow platform made of limestone, sand, algae, and coral reefs that covers 2,370 square miles (6,140 square kilometers).
