Photographer's Note

Taken enroute from Bucharest to Doha from a Qatar airlines flight, this use to be the largest lake in the Middle East and the 6th largest salt water lake in the world. But similarly to the Aral Sea, it has shrunk to 10% of its former size, following the damming of freshwater streams that lead into it. It has a noticeable pinkish colour. More info here:
