There's no way the colouring on this picture can be accurate. Way more yellow-brown/beige in the region pictured.. it is no way near this green - especially this luscious looking green they have here.    -- This picture is as if we are looking at some sub-tropical forested area, whereas this area pictured is rolling plains for the most part covered with yellow scrub grass  -- or maybe the green just shows up better in outer space LOL..  Do the Victorians pay you guys for this kind of embellishment?? Hahaha :)
