The Emerald Isle with a frosting of snow

This is a beautiful image of Ireland taken at about 11am this morning (23 December 2010) which I grabed from the ESA's Miravi service. This image is cropped to show just the island of Ireland and is contrast enhanced. The last week or so has been a particularly severe cold snap with record low temperatures for December. The Corrib lake is seen to be partially covered by ice.

The original image is here, (12MB).

There is a similar image available from the Irish Met Office here.
