Caspian Sea - April 3rd, 2012

While the waters of the Caspian Sea near the Volga Delta are bright green from sediments exiting the Volga River mouth and phytoplankton growth, the shallow waters further northeast are coated in a layer of ice. The northern part of the sea is generally the only section that freezes during winter. In the main image, visible onland in the delta area are plumes of smoke from three wildfires.
