2019 Advent Calendar – December 12: Turkmenbashi Gulf, Turkmenistan

For December 12th, we take you to the Eastern shore of the Caspian Sea in Turkmenistan. Here is the southeastern tip of the Turkmenbashi Gulf, a mix of enchanting colors!

See the magnificent contrast of colors between the turquoise blue water and the desertic lanscape. Ponds & salt flats change with water levels and create ever changing sceneries.

Did you know? The Turkmenbashi Gulf is home of the Caspian seal which is found exclusively in the brackish Caspian Sea.

Bruno, satellite imagery technician at PlanetObserver, is captivated by that satellite image and its amazing colors.
