The Pontic Mountains frame the southern coast of the Black Sea in the upper left quadrant of this image focusing on Turkey.

Several other lakes can be observed, including Lake Van, in Turkey (center) and Lake Urmia, in northwestern Iran. The former appears dark blue with some lighter areas colored by sediments, while the latter appears reddish and ringed by white salt flats.
