  STS61A-50-70 Lake Eildon, Victoria, Australia November 1985
The ruggedness of the Great Dividing Range of east central Victoria is captured in this northeast looking view. A key identifying landmark of this photograph is Lake Eildon (the dark colored, crooked, and branched feature, bottom center). The light, greenish region is a plateau of low alpine meadows or rolling hills surrounded by a heavily forested, mountainous landscape (darker, rougher, green terrain). While the plateau area averages about 2000 feet (610 meters) above sea level, the taller peaks in this region, including Mount Buller (5922 feet--1805 meters above sea level) visible near the center of the image, vary from 4000 feet (1220 meters) to almost 6000 feet (1829 meters) above sea level. These higher elevations have a brownish tint and appear to have less vegetation (forest). STS61A-50-069 is an overlapping image that offers additional coverage of the Eildon Lake area. Clouds (white features) are visible along the right side of the picture.
