Provence coast, satellite image. North is at top. Water is dark blue, vegetation is green, and urban areas are pink. Bays and peninsulas form this coastline, where France's Provence region meets the Mediterranean Sea. The large city at lower left is the ancient port of Marseilles, the country's second largest city. Inland, the ridges and peaks of hills alternate with lakes and densely populated river valleys. The area shown in this image is around 100 kilometres wide. The image data includes infrared wavelengths, and was obtained on 1 May 2003, by the Landsat 7 satellite.
