At the center of the image, the Blanca Grande Lagoon can be seen. Just to its right is the Colorada Grande Lagoon. Just to the west of the city of Blanca Bay are Chicas Salt Lake and the Chasico Lagoon. The wide, flat, grassy plains and agricultural patterns of the Pampas are visible throughout the scene.
