Italy - July 26th, 2009

This relatively cloudless image provides a clear view of the Italian peninsula and island of Sicily, as well as the shorelines of Croatia and Albania along the Adriatic Sea.

As the image was captured during the summer, little snow is visible on the peaks of the Italian Alps (upper left quadrant), the Apennines (running down the center of the peninsula) and the Dinaric Alps (paralleling the eastern shores of the Adriatic).

The coastlines are mostly clear of sediments, probably due to less rainful during the summer months, although some are present in the Adriatic by the Po Delta (upper left quadrant) and the Gargano Peninsula (center).
