  STS068-161-106 Don River, Russia October 1994
A large section of the intensively cultivated (angular field patterns) steppe country of southwest Russia is visible in this synoptic view. The industrial and cultural city of Rostov-On-Don with over a million inhabitants is located slightly above the center of the image. West of Rostov the Don River splits into several distributory channels that wind through the low-lying, swampy delta. Taganrogsky Bay, a northeast extension of the Sea of Azov, has sunlight reflecting off of the surface of the water, thereby creating a milky-colored feature (upper right). The extensive floodplain of the Don River extends diagonally from the corner of the image (bottom left) to the center of the image.
