Image Caption: This enormous center pivot irrigated agricultural complex in Saudi Arabia (26.5N, 43.5E) is located about 250 miles northwest of the capital city of Riyadh. The darker circular fields are indicative of active growing crops as contrasted to the lighter toned fields indicating that they are either fallow or abandoned. Other recognizable features include Wadi ar Rumah, the cities of Buraydah, Unayzah and Ar Rassan and an airstrip at Gassim.
