Snow Atop the Alps and Apennines, Italy

Italy - January 24th, 2011

Snow rests on the peaks of the Alps, bordering northern Italy, Switzerland and France. The valley of the River Po, below the towering mountains, is snow free.

Snow can also be seen atop the Apennine Mountains, creating an almost rectangular white shape that crosses the image diagonally from the center to the right edge. The white powder coats the crests of the mountains on the island of Corsica (bottom center, belonging to France), as well.

Also visible at the foot of the Alps is Lake Garda, in Italy near the top center. To the west, on the other side of the mountains, is Lake Geneva, in Switzerland. Both lakes appear dark blue in color.
