Libya - July 30th, 2010

The tan and golden sands of the Libyan Desert dominate this image of Libya in North Africa. One large, circular area towards the image center differs from its surroundings, as it is brown in color.

This area is the Haruj, a large volcanic field that covers approximately 45000 km2 in the center of the country. Around 150 volcanoes can be found in the field. Other volcanic formations include large craters, cones and lava flows.
