Italy - June 21st, 2011

Some snow is still visible atop the Alps in this image of Europe, taken on the first day of the northern hemisphere summer. The Apennines, running down the center of the Italian Peninsula, however, appear snow-free.

To the east of the peninsula is the Adriatic Sea, with numerous Croatian islands lining its eastern shores. Some sediments can be seen entering its northern part, by the delta of the River Po. Northwest of the delta, is Lake Garda, at the foot of the Alps.
