Pan Mid-Atlantic Coast

This photograph covers the mid-Atlantic Coast of the eastern United States from New Jersey (just to the right of top center of the image) southward to just southwest of Cape Lookout, North Carolina. Near the upper left of the image, the folded Appalachian Mountains of South-central Pennsylvania are discernible. Delaware Bay between the state of New Jersey to the north and the state Delaware is visible. The Delmarva Peninsula is discernible to the south of Delaware Bay. To the west of the Delmarva Peninsula is Chesapeake Bay. At the entrance to Chesapeake Bay, Cape Charles (north) and Cape Henry (south) can be seen. Capes Hatteras and Lookout and their barrier islands are visible in the bottom portion of the image. To the west of the Barrier Islands is Pamlico Sound. West of Pamlico Sound are agricultural fields of the coastal plain of North Carolina.
