Croatia - July 26th, 2009

Croatia borders the Adriatic Sea along its 5,835 km coastline. This area, like the rest of the east coast of the Adriatic, is generally bold and rocky, with many islands.

Upon opening the full image, the entire length of the coastline can be seen, from the peninsula of Istria in the north to the southermost islands.

The islands, which are long and narrow (the long axis lying parallel with the coast of the mainland), rise rather abruptly to elevations of a few hundred feet, with the exception of a few larger islands.
