Image Caption: STS008-43-2172 Reynolds Ranges, Northern Territory, Australia September 1983
Located north of the Macdonnell Mountain Ranges in south central Northern Territory, two smaller ranges are barely discernible in this low oblique, southwest looking picture. Drainage patterns (lighter-colored, linear features) that only intermittently carry water in this desert environment can be traced across the landscape from the flanks of the Reynolds Ranges (northwest-southeast aligned feature near center of image) as some creeks flow north and others flow generally to the south. The Stuart Bluff Range is a very narrow ridgeline that can be identified immediately north of the dry lakebed (highly reflective feature at the top of the image). The small, dark areas within the dry lake suggest that some type of plant life exists at the time this picture was acquired. The very dark area near the eastern margin of the dry lake may be standing water.
