Image Caption:
STS49-86-008, 010: Agriculture, North Africa Near the boundary
between rocky desert hills and a sand sheet, relatively small,
scattered, individual fields have been superseded by very large
multiple fields. Presumably the water is being pumped from deep
wells. Frame 008 is the lightest, and frame 010 the darkest, of
a bracketed triplet. Hasselblad camera, 250mm lens, color film.
