Italy - December 27th, 2010

Sediments give a greenish hue to the waters along the southeastern coast of Sicily. The entire Italian island can be observed in the full image.

Despite the fact that the image was taken in winter, snow is visible only on the highest of the island’s mountain peaks, including Mount Etna (top).
