Black and Caspian Seas - March 20th, 2012

Two huge bodies of water: the Black Sea (left) and the Caspian Sea (right) can be observed by the edge of this image. Stretching between the two are the Caucasus Mountains.

Also visible between the seas, in the lower part of the image, are the dark blue Lake Van, in Turkey (below, center), the bright green Lake Urmia, in Iran (right of the former), and Lake Sevan, in Armenia (center). Lakes Van and Sevan are surrounded by snow, while Lake Urmia is ringed by white salt flats.
