The most southwestern part of Kazakhstan, the Mangystau Oblast region, bordering the huge Caspian Sea. One of those typical remote corners of the world that is hardly ever seen by human eyes from above since only a handful of airways and airlines overfly this region. Most traffic between Europe and Asia is flying far further north over Russia, or much further down south towards the Middle-East. Only a handful of cargo planes and local airlines inbound Azerbaijan start their descent here on their way to Baku to pick up freight or simply refuel.
I'm always fascinated by those coastal areas where the dry land changes instantly into the sea without any indication of vegetation where you'd expect some plant life with so much water around.
