  STS073-746-071 Southern Delmarva Peninsula, Cape Charles, Virginia, U.S.A. October 1995
This color infrared, southeast-looking low oblique view shows Cape Charles and the southern portion of the Delmarva Peninsula, Virginia. The western shore of the narrow peninsula facing Chesapeake Bay is irregular and marshy. The eastern shore facing the Atlantic Ocean is fairly straight with sandy beaches and offshore sandy bars and small islands. Waves and winds from Atlantic Ocean storms are constantly changing the shape of these barrier islands. Color infrared highlights the land use patterns on the peninsula because fields and woodlands appear in different shades of red. The tip of the peninsula, Cape Charles, is visible near the upper right portion of the image.
