  Title: Hammersley Range, northern Western Australia
  Description:
  The oval shaped basin of the sedimentary rocks of the Hammersley Range, 
  northern Western Australia (23.0S, 119.0E) dominates the center of this
  near  nadir view.  The Fortescue River is the remarkably straight, fault
  controlled  feature bordering the Hammersley on the north.  Sand dunes are
  the main  surface features in the northeast and southwest.  Many dry
  lakebeds can be  seen to the east as light grey colored patches along the
  watercourses.
