Today’s Image of the Day from the European Space Agency features incredible springtime landscapes across Ireland, Great Britain, and northern France. The photograph captures a rare, unobstructed satellite view of the region. 

Thousands of lakes can be seen scattered throughout Ireland, while swirls of brown and green sediment are visible along Britain’s southeastern coast.

The image was captured by Envisat on March 28, 2012.
