Karaca Volcano and Ataturk Dam, Turkey – January 17th, 2009
Snow covers the Taurus Mountains in southeastern Anatolia region of Turkey and caps the summit of the Karaca volcano (center right), a shield volcano.
The lake surrounded by snow, north of Karaca, is called Lake Hazar (Hazar Gölü); it is notable as the source of the Tigris River.
The large body of water in the lower left quadrant was created by the Atatürk Dam (Turkish: Atatürk Barajı), on the Euphrates River.
The Atatürk Dam, one of the five operational dams on the Euphrates as of 2008, is preceded by Keban and Karakaya dams upstream.
