Portugal - December 13th, 2009

The Tagus River appears as a black line crossing southwestern Portugal in this orthorectified image. It empties into the Tagus River Estuary and then the Atlantic Ocean by the city of Lisbon.

Upon opening the full image, the 25th of April Bridge (Ponte 25 de Abril) can be seen as a thick white line over the Tagus, connecting Lisbon to the city of Almada.

Moving northward, in the upper left quadrant, are the mountains of the Serras de Aire e Candeeiros Natural Park. It is one of the 30 areas which are officially under protection in the country.
