  STS062-153-137 Mobile Bay, Alabama, U.S.A. March 1994
Featured in this synoptic, northwest-looking photograph are sediment-laden Mobile Bay; the coastlines of southern Mississippi and Alabama extending from the Pearl River floodplain in the west (upper left) to just west of Pensacola, Florida, in the east (bottom center); and the highly reflective, sandy beaches of the barrier islands that help protect the Intracoastal Waterway. Mobile is barely discernible northwest of Mobile Bay, north of which is an extensive delta and floodplain created by the convergence of two rivers--light, meandering Tombigbee and the southwest-flowing Alabama. Apparent are dark, forested lands interspersed with lighter agricultural areas. The Talladega National Forest is visible north-northeast of Mobile (right edge of photograph).
