Heavy rains flooded parts of West and Central Africa in the rainy season of 2010, and among the hardest-hit countries was Benin. The image, which shows the coast of Benin cotonou, benin on 22 October 2010, uses a combination of infrared and visible light to increase the contrast between water and land.

Water ranges in color from electric blue to navy. Vegetation appears bright green. Clouds range in color from off-white to pale blue-green.
