  STS062-098-171 Pensacola, Florida, U.S.A. March 1994
The highly reflective, sandy beaches that are characteristic of the Florida panhandle barrier islands are evident in this synoptic photograph. Discernible are the general outline of the city on land that juts southeast to Escambia and Pensacola Bays; the south-flowing Escambia River with its vegetated floodplain and delta (lower right corner); and large, cultivated fields east of Escambia Bay (bottom center). The Perdido River and Perdido Bay, immediately west of Pensacola, form the Alabama-Florida panhandle border. A narrow peninsula that extends westward and separates Pensacola Bay from the Intracoastal Waterway roughly parallels Santa Rosa Island, a sandy barrier island, and the east-west-oriented lagoon that separates the island from the mainland.
