Libya - July 4th, 2011

The darker brown areas that stand out against the otherwise light tan Libyan desert are mostly mountain ranges or volcanic features.

Visible at the top center, parallel to the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, is the Al Jabel Al Akhdar range. The circular brown area near the left edge is the Haruj Volcanic Field.
