Turkey is one of the most amazing countries to fly over (in a plane at least) the mountains are breathtaking.

„Real“ pollution changes the colors much more drastically. Have a look at the Mexican Gulf oil spill images here: http://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/NaturalHazards/event.php?id=43733

That „pollution“ rather certainly is sediment (sand) washed up by strong waves, makes the water appear less deep and therefore brighter when seen from above.
