Spain - January 6th, 2012

This image shows thick patches of clouds hanging over parts of the Iberian Peninsula during the northern hemisphere winter. Visible along the coastline are sediments from rivers such as the Tagus, whose large estuary by Lisbon, Portugal, is best observed near the center left in the full image, and the Guadalquivir, which enters the Gulf of Cádiz by the city of Sanlúcar de Barrameda and the Doñana National Park, in the lower right quadrant. Also visible at the lower right is the Strait of Gibraltar, partially covered by clouds. The strait separates Spain from Morocco, which can be observed upon opening the full image.
