Caspian Sea - May 31st, 2012

A plume of dust blows over the Caspian Sea and curves around the Georgia-Azerbaijan-Armenia border. Hovering over the sea and the border area between those countries, the dust veils part of the Caspian Sea but does not cover other large lakes such as the Mingacevir Reservoir, in Azerbaijan, and Lake Sevan, in Armenia. Visible to the north of the dust plume are sediments from the Volga River.
