France - August 31st, 2009

The city of Paris and surrounding metropolitan area, known as Île-de-France, appear as a greyish brown area towards the upper right. Upon opening the full image and examining this urbain zone closely, Paris proper appears as a grey circular area in the center, while the rest of Île-de-France beyond the geographical limits of the city is brown.

The distinctive curves of the River Seine can also be seen meandering through Paris and Île-de-France in the full image. After exiting the city, the river winds its way across the golden coastal plains of northern France to Le Havre on the shores of the English Channel.
