The irregularly shaped Lake Van, in Turkey, is surrounded by snow. The land to the south in Iraq (bottom right quadrant) and Syria (lower left quadrant), however, is snow free.

Several other lakes can be observed on the left side of the image, including Lake Assad in Syria (bottom left) and Lake Atatürk Dam, north of Lake Assad, in Turkey.
