Algeria - June 30th, 2010

The part of Algeria near its border with Morocco is hilly (upper left quadrant), although as one moves southeastward these higher elevations gradually give way to a steppe landscape, and finally to the dunes of the Sahara Desert.

Despite the rather arid nature of the region, one lake can be seen to the right of the image center. In the full image, its colors range from dark blue to green, in contrast with the golden dunes nearby.
