USA - July 16th, 2009

The cities of Oakdale, Stockton, Manteca, Modesto and Turlock (from top to bottom) appear bright white and light grey, distinguishing themselves from the mostly dark grey of the rest of California’s Central Valley in thisĀ  orthorectified image.

To the east of Oakdale is the Camanche Reservoir, located in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada. It is fed by the Mokelumne River, which originates in the higher altitudes of the mountain range.

Part of the Sierra Nevada range itself becomes visible at the far right after moving past the foothills. On the far left, in the lower corner, a small section of the Diablo Range (part of the Coast Ranges) can also be noted.
