Image Caption:
STS49-87-002, 003: Coast of China Large bay (Sandu Ao; 26.4N,
119.7E), islands, and tidal passes on the coast of the People's
Republic of China between Xiapu and Fuzhou. This pair illus-
trates the use of bracketing: frame 002 is slightly light but
exposed about as well as it could be; frame 003 is about 1/2 stop
underexposed. Four succeeding frames were taken in sunglint.
The color-infrared film illustrates vegetation patterns onshore,
without losing much information on water patterns. Hasselblad
camera, 250mm lens, color-infrared film.
