Image of the western part of Cuba. The capital, Havana, makes a grayish patch along the green, northern coastline. The Gauniguanico Mountains dominate the western tip of the island, and appear darker green than the coastal terrain. Across the Batabano Bay, the dark green color of the peninsula is due to lush wetlands (NASA - 2002).
