Figure 22. Photograph 84-701-050. View east across the Helmand block and Makran beds showing the drag along the transform faults marking the boundary between the Eurasian and Indian Plates. In the middle distance is the big arc of the Suleiman Ranges in Pakistan. The Himalayas hide under the clouds on the skyline.

The next picture is to the left of this scene. The dark, massive mountain range on the left side (the volcano line) that is truncated at the far end by the Chaman fault, the transform boundary between the Eurasian and Indian Plates, will be an easy landmark for the next picture.
