Cape Peninsula is at the left of False Bay just below centre. Near the top of the peninsula is Cape Town, at the bottom is the Cape of Good Hope. The dark area on the coast next to Cape Town is the Table Mountain group which reaches a height of 1086 metres. Just to the right of Cape Town is a region of vineyards. Along the coast at bottom right is the Hottentot-Holland Range. At top right is part of the Great Escarpment, the edge of the South African Plateau. This image was made by Landsat 4 in 1983.
