Lines of wind-blown foam stretch across the clear but very salty waters of Turkmenistan's Garabogazköl Basin — a shallow lagoon at the eastern edge of the Caspian Sea. The bottom of the lagoon is clearly visible where the water is shallowest.

The above image was collected by Landsat 8 on February 10, 2021. Click on it to get a larger version that includes the entire lagoon.
