Caption: The British Isles seen from space. This image is a mosaic of data gathered by Landsat satellites, with the colours processed to approximate to natural tones. Most of the UK appears as brownish green, indicating extensive agriculture. Brown areas in the West Country, Wales and northern England are sparse mountainous heathland vegetation. In Scotland, snow-covered mountains are seen with dark green coniferous forests below the snow line. Below this is a dark brown indicating moorland. Most of Eire has a mid-green colour indicative of rich pasture.
