Turkey and Cyprus - November 28th, 2010

This image focuses on the island of Cyprus, located in the Mediterranean Sea to the south of Turkey. It is the third-largest island in the Mediterranean.

Two mountain ranges can be observed on the island: the Troodos Mountains and the Kyrenia Range. The former is larger, appearing as a thick green line on the western side of the island. The latter is smaller and situated parallel to the island’s northern shoreline. The tan stretch of land between the two ranges is the Mesaoria, Cyprus’ central plain.
