The Mediterranean Sea from northeast
The Mediterranean Sea forms the natural southern border of Europe separating it from northern Africa with the Sahara desert visible in the background of this view. Nearly the full width of the sea can be seen in this view from the Strait of Gibraltar on the far right to the Island of Rhodos on the left leaving only the eastmost part out of view. In the foreground the mountains and plains of southeastern Europe can be seen including the snow covered mountains of the Alps on the right.
