France and Spain - December 10th, 2010

The Pyrenees Mountains, on the border between Spain (below) and France (above) are capped by snow in this late fall image of Europe. In the full image, the range can be seen stretching from the Bay of Biscay (left) to the Mediterranean Sea (right), for a total of 435 km (270 mi).

To the north of the range, the Garonne River can be seen flowing towards the northwest. The city of Toulouse appears as a grey area along its path approximately half way between the east and west coasts of France.
