Spain - October 21st, 2010

Portugal, occupying the western part of the Iberian Peninsula, appears greener than its neighbor, Spain, to the east. While northwestern Spain, near the coast of the Bay of Biscay, does show much green vegetation, large portions of the rest of the country appear tan and considerably drier.

These tan areas mostly belong to the Meseta Central in Spain, the large plateau occupying the center of the peninsula. The green areas crossing it are mountain ranges such as the sistema central.
