  STS61A-31-0037 Recherche Archipeligo, Western Australia, Australia November 1985
The southern coast of Western Australia between the port city of Esperance (west side) and Point Malcolm (east) is captured in this regional view. An extensive array of small islands, the Recherche Archipeligo, as well as a scattered reef system are intermingled along this coastline. The highly reflective strips along the shoreline are very large sandy beaches. The lighter-colored landscape tends to be cultivated fields or extensive rangeland while the darker terrain shows large areas of undeveloped land consisting of natural vegetation. Straight lines indicate property boundaries.
