The city of Paris, capital of France, appears as a large grey area at the center right of this image. The city covers a total area of 105.39 km2 (41 sq mi).

In the full image, the River Seine can be seen leaving the city and meandering northwestward towards Le Havre, where it empties into the English Channel. Here, golden tan sediments can be seen pouring out of the rivermouth.
