Italy - April 28th, 2010

Only the peaks of mountains such as the Alps (above) and the Appennines (running down the backbone of the Italian peninsula) are snow-covered in this spring view of Italy.

Upon opening the full image, Lake Garda is visible at the southern foot of the Alps and Lakes Geneva, Neuch√Ętel and Constance (from west to east) are visible in Switzerland at the northern foot.

Moving to the coasts, the western shores are mostly free of sediments, while the eastern shore is framed by them, particularly near Venice and the River Po to the north and the Gargano Peninsula to the south.
