Persian Gulf - July 4th, 2011

Dust blows over the Persian Gulf, between the Arabian Peninsula and Iran. Its length is 989 kilometres, with Iran covering most of the northern coast and Saudi Arabia most of the southern coast.

Visible through the sandy veil are sediments from the Shatt al’Arab River at the northwestern end of the gulf.
This major river carries the waters of the Euphrates and the Tigris.
