Italy, Croatia, Hungary - March 30th, 2011

Snow caps the tops of mountains in Italy (left) and Croatia (center right), making the ranges’ peaks stand out against the surrounding landscape. Particularly notable are the Alps (upper left) and the Apennines (lower left).

Several bodies of water can also be noted: Lake Garda, at the foot of the Alps in Italy, and Lake Balaton, near the upper right edge, in Hungary. Sediments from the River Po can also be seen entering the northern part of the Adriatic Sea.
