Caspian Sea – October 21st, 2012

Sediments create tan paisley patterns in the usually blue waters of Karabogas Bay, a shallow inundated depression in the northwestern corner of Turkmenistan that forms a lagoon of the Caspian Sea. The water volume of the bay fluctuates seasonally with the Caspian Sea; at times it becomes a large bay of the Caspian Sea, while at other times its water level drops drastically.
