Sediments and algae color the waters of the Caspian Sea and the Mangyshlakski Bay an intense greenish blue and gold off the shores of Kazakhstan. Algae growth in the northern Caspian Sea is usually caused by agricultural run-off.

The land visible on the right is the Mangyshlak Peninsula, part of the province of Mangystau that includes much of Kazakhstan’s Caspian Shore.  The islands visible in the center are also part of this province.
