Today’s Image of the Day comes from the NASA Earth Observatory and features a look at greenhouses in the Cayambe Valley of Ecuador’s Northern Highlands.

This area has one of the highest densities of greenhouses for rose production in the world, according to Gregory Knapp, geographer from the University of Texas at Austin.
