Caption: Nantes. True-colour satellite image of Nantes (at right), France, and the surrounding area. North is at top. Urban areas such as Nantes and Saint Nazarre (upper left) appear in shades of grey. Forests and other thickly-vegetated areas are dark green, grazing areas are light green, & crops are mostly yellow. Bare ground appears pale yellow or brown, almost white. The estuary of the River Loire is at centre left. The colour of the Loire and the sea depends upon depth, currents and the amount of sediment in the water. Nantes is surrounded by a patchwork of agricultural fields. Image taken by the American Landsat-5 satellite. The smallest visible objects are 30 metres across.
