Caspian Sea - May 3rd, 2011

Although the Volga River Delta is partially obscured by clouds, its final reaches along the shores of the Caspian Sea can be observed, as can the sediments spilling out of it and into the lake.

While the lowest reaches of the delta appear brown, the sediments flowing out change from light brown to golden to green and finally to turquoise in color as they mix with the waters of the Caspian Sea.
