Image Caption:
STS49-96-070: Luzon Coast The Tineg River at Vigan, northwestern
Luzon, Philippine Islands, was caught in flood. Sediment and wa-
ter form a braided pattern in major stream beds. Remnant closed-
canopy forest is shown in purplish-red tones on the hills; the
topographic pattern suggests folded and faulted rocks underlying
the hills. This is one frame of several that cover northwestern
Luzon from Manila Bay, through the Lingayan Gulf, into the Cgayan
River valley. Hasselblad camera, 250mm lens, color-infrared
film.
