Morocco - March 30th, 2011

The Atlas Mountains cross the upper part of this image in a diagonal line, easily spotted due to the white of their snow-capped peaks in contrast with the tan of the surrounding desert.

The terrain becomes progressively flatter and the Sahara Desert sandier as one moves southward into southwestern Algeria. In the full image, some areas of sand dunes can be observed.
