  STS064-215-028 Agriculture, Rostov Oblast, Russia September 1994
A series of interconnected lakes (dark, winding features extending vertically through the center of the image) drain generally northwest toward the city of Rostov-na-Donv in southwest Russia. While the city is not in this picture (just off of the top center), the northwest-looking view provides a synoptic view of a landscape that is used extensively for agriculture (large, angular field patterns). The scene shows part of the vast steppe country (semi arid climate) that is very productive in grain crops throughout this region of southwestern Russia. A very small part of the Don River floodplain (no distinguishable field patterns) is visible in the upper right corner of the image.
