Northern Italy - February 26th, 2009

The Italian Alps, curving from the top right to the bottom left, are covered by snow, as is the smaller Apennine Range, running southward from the bottom right quadrant.

The lowlands towards the center, between the two mountain ranges, where cities such asĀ  Turin and Milan are located, are free of snow but coated with a light fog.

The River Po can be seen flowing through the center of these lowlands, and Lake Garda is visible to the right, just below the Alps.
