Photographer's Note

The place in this picture is in the Ikryaninskiy District of Astrakhan Oblast. I have taken the picture from the bridge over the Tarankhol Yerik (it is seen in the foreground).

The world “yerik” in Russian means a narrower anabranch between wider anabranches. The Tarankhol Yerik flows from the Glavnaya Protoka (the Main Anabranch, you can see it in the background) to the Bakhtemir River, which is the westernmost distributary of the Volga River at its delta.
