Image Caption: A near vertical view of a portion of the Murray River Basin area in the northwest corner of the State of Victoria, Australia (35.5S, 142,0E), as seen from the Skylab space station in Earth orbit. Dry Lake Tyrrell appears as pink and white. The Murray River is in the lower right corner of the photograph. A mass of clouds (white) covers a large portion of the left side of the picture. Rectangular fields of varying sizes indicate an area of major agriculture. A difference in soil color (from pink near the river to buff extending outward) is evident. Large uncultivated areas (dark) are either areas of recent burning or areas unsuitable for growing crops.
