Italy - April 8th, 2011

Thin clouds create a translucent haze over the Italian Peninsula. While the haze extends over the Tyrrhenian Sea, but does not pass beyond the islands of Sicily (below), Sardinia (left, below) and Corsica (left, above).

Visible to the south is part of Tunisia, fertile near the northern coast and becoming progressively more arid as one moves southward. Some lakes and areas of salt flats appear as white expanses amidst the desert terrain.
