Today’s Image of the Day from NASA Earth Observatory features a region of southern central Romania where the Carpathian Mountains in the north meet lowland plains in the south.

According to NASA, the tree-like branch patterns are formed by erosion along rivers and streams.

The Cotmeana River is visible in the center of the photo, and hundreds of small agricultural plots are scattered throughout this region of Romania.
