STS068-174-169 Rolling Plains Northeast of Dallas, Texas, U.S.A. October 1994
Widely scattered cumulus clouds obscure some of the vast rolling plains of north Texas in this panoramic, southwest-looking photograph of the landscape north and northeast of Dallas. Concentrations of lighter features (top center) show northward development of the Dallas metropolitan area. The darker areas of mature vegetation within metropolitan Dallas show older, established neighborhoods. Four large reservoirs are discernible viewing counterclockwise from east of Dallas--Lake Ray Hubbard (top left), Lake Lavon, Garza Little Elm Reservoir, and Lake Ray Roberts. Visible are part of Cooper Lake, a recently completed reservoir on the South Sulphur River (lower left corner); part of Lake Texoma; and the meandering Red River (lower right quadrant).
