Italy - June 30th, 2010

Clouds hang over the Apennine Mountains, the mountain chain running down the backbone of the Italian Peninsula. Other areas, such as the valley of the River Po to the north, are unobscured.

In the full image, sediments spilling from the Po Delta tinge the waters of the Adriatic Sea a greenish color. Sediments can also be seen north of the delta, in the Venetian Lagoon and Gulf of Venice.

On the western side of the peninsula, the cities of Naples, near Mount Vesuvius, and Rome, near Lake Bracciano, appear as greyish brown areas by the coast. Two other lakes can be observed near Rome: Lake Bolsena (northwest of Lake Bracciano) and Lake Trasimeno (greenish blue).
