This orthorectified image shows much of the island of Hawaii, USA. The island is formed by five volcanoes, two of which are prominent here: Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea.

The former occupies the lower half of the image; its caldera is clearly visible in the lower right quadrant. The latter can be seen in the upper right quadrant. Its sides appear rougher than those of Mauna Loa, whose slopes are relatively shallow.
