  STS073-744-044 Coast Mountains and Point Arguello, California, U.S.A. November 1995
The color infrared film used in this photograph accentuates the rugged topography of coastal southwestern California near Point Arguello, the large promontory in the Pacific Ocean. Discernible are cultivated field patterns around Santa Maria and the western end of the Santa Ynez Mountains that parallel the California coastline. A small cluster of irrigated agriculture fields appears immediately west of Lompoc near the mouth of the Santa Ynez River. The brighter reds show irrigated crops, and deeper reds show native or natural vegetation. Two runways are visible—the long northwest-southeast-oriented runway of Vandenberg Air Force Base near the coast northwest of Lompoc and a V-shaped runway just south of Santa Maria.
