Thick Clouds Over Po Valley, Between Alps and Apennines, Italy – February 1st, 2011

Italy - January 16th, 2011

While the white snow on the Alps serves to highlight their ridges and differentiate them from the valleys below, the Italian terrain to the south is completely obscured by thick, white clouds.

This cloud cover rests between the Alps and the Apennines, sits over the Po Valley, and spreads out over Venice and the Adriatic. Lake Garda, however, is visible at the base of the Alps and just at the beginning of the thick fog layer.
