STS064-110-088 San Francisco Bay Area, California, U.S.A. September 1994
The gray urban area in this near-vertical, synoptic photograph contrasts with the dark ridges and hills to the east. Two east-west-oriented highways traverse the ridges and hills, connecting the densely populated Bay Area with the valley to the east. The whites, browns, and greens at the southern end of San Francisco Bay are large salt settling ponds where salt is extracted from the brackish water.
