Caption: Edinburgh seen from space. Satellite image of the city of Edinburgh, Scotland. This image has been processed to approximate to natural tones. The city is at right, bordering on the Firth of Forth estuary. To the west (left) of the city is Turnhouse Airport. North of the airport are two bridges across the River Forth, the road bridge (left) and the rail bridge (right). Sediment flows in the water are clearly seen. Most of the land around the city is used as pasture, although some cultivation is evident in the pale fields. The data for this image were gathered by a French SPOT satellite.
