A Warm and Dry Britain and Ireland {Photo of the Day}

The European Space Agency’s Envisat satellite captured this image of Great Britain and Northern Ireland on May 2.

The image shows a brown and dry landscape, unsurprising as it followed one of the warmest months on record. The image shows Scotland (top) and Northern Ireland (bottom left) after they had endured just two-thirds of the rain normally expected in April, and increased temperatures.
