  STS062-109-067 Barkly Tableland, Queensland, Australia March 1994
The northeast end of the slightly elevated Barkly Tableland (darker area) shows a marked color contrast in this semiarid landscape roughly 60 miles (97 kilometers) northwest of Mount Isa near the Queensland-Northern Territory border. The dark, V-shaped feature is a slightly elevated, sandy area that is covered by grass. Within this grassland, the lighter colored, reddish patterns are burn scars, probably caused by a lightning strike. Several ephemeral streams can be identified in the lower, flatter regions of the image.
